The following is an excerpt from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Division of Finance and Administration Statement of Ethics:
“Professional ethics are the foundation of an organization. If they are clear, firm and diligently maintained, our ethics can support great endeavors. Ethics represent our vital standards that are documented as the principles we believe in, the values to which we adhere, and the practices we follow. Unwavering adherence to high ethical standards will only be of benefit to those we serve, those to whom we are accountable, and ourselves. While the results of our service efforts will always be of critical importance, ethics focus on the choices we make in our professional endeavors.”
As stewards of University resources, it is important that each of us exercise care and sound judgment in our use of University property. Your involvement is an important component of fraud prevention and detection, and possible misuse must be reported.
Our mission is to cultivate a culture of strong financial control throughout the University to ensure the assets the people of North Carolina have entrusted with us are safe, secure, and expended wisely.
