View: Code of Ethics

Cleveland State University is very proud of its strong employee commitment
to maintaining high ethical standards in the conduct of University
business.

To reinforce our commitment to compliance and integrity, we are launching a
very important initiative in support of the University's current Code of
Ethics
. If you encounter a situation in the workplace that you believe
will compromise the University's principles of compliance and integrity, we
encourage you to discuss it with your supervisor, the head of your
department, the Human Resources Department, Affirmative Action, the Police
Department or the Office of Legal Counsel.

If raising an issue in this way makes you uncomfortable, you may report
your concerns by calling the University's toll-free Action Line
number. The University is committed to addressing any compliance issue
brought to our attention through the Action Line in a prompt, fair and
sensitive manner. This Action Line has been established to provide you
with an additional mechanism to communicate your concern. The Action Line
service is provided through an independent company that will protect your
anonymity to the extent feasible consistent with University policies and
applicable federal, state, and local laws. You can call from any phone
free of charge, and it is available to all employees, 24 hours a day and
365 days a year. Reports can be made by calling 888.837.1824.

As we work together toward our shared mission of excellence in education
and research, it is important that we maintain our commitment to the
highest standards of performance. The way we treat one another and the way
we conduct the University's business are responsibilities we all share.
