The University of New Mexico is joining hundreds of other institutions and organizations this week to celebrate Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week, to reflect on the importance of these two pillars of our institutional integrity. Compliance Week officially kicks off at the University of New Mexico on Monday, Nov. 2 to Friday, Nov. 6.

Corporate Compliance & Ethics Week began in 2005 to shine a spotlight on the importance of compliance and ethics by holding annual compliance and ethics trainings, auditing current processes, and introducing new policies. The core principles of the week are awareness, recognition and reinforcement.

UNM’s guiding principles include a focus on academic excellence, accountability, integrity, respect and a profound commitment to the diverse local and national cultures that make up the campus community. An ethical culture is one that exhibits a constant willingness to examine and reflect on its own decision-making processes and to look for ways to keep improving.

As one of the ways to improve, UNM's Health Sciences Center Compliance Office is hosting a series of Lunch & Learn events highlighting impactful topics that build upon UNM’s ethical culture.
