The University is committed to comply with applicable laws and Standards, to promote a culture of fair and ethical behaviour and to encourage the reporting of corrupt practices, breaches of the law, and matters detrimental to the University or its reputation. To support this aim, and in alignment with the Public Sector Ethics Act 1994 (Qld), the University has adopted a Code of Conduct.

The Code of Conduct applies to all staff of the University. It is an expectation of the University that contractors will also act in accordance with this Code of Conduct while undertaking work for or on behalf of the University.

This online course supports staff to become familiar with the principles and application of the Code of Conduct. The training and assessment must be completed by all continuing and fixed term staff within 3 months of commencing their employment with The University of Queensland. Refresher training will be required every 2 years. Casual staff are also strongly encouraged to complete the training and the assessment.

This course will enable participants to: 

• Understand why we have a Code of Conduct
• Understand the University’s definition of ethical conduct
• Explore the ethical principles of the Code of Conduct, including practical examples of
  their application
• Understand their responsibilities in relation to the Code, including their own conduct and
   reporting requirements for ethical concerns
• Know where to go for further information or support
