We are all Winners with an Ethical Culture!

This toolkit was prepared for use by USG institutions in promoting the Chancellor’s system-wide efforts to further promote and celebrate our ethical culture. As part of this program, each institution will take part in activities which will highlight the value of an ethical culture and bring awareness to the impact of fraud on organizations and their employees. Activities and events will be built around International Fraud Awareness Week – November 13 - 19, 2016.
