Essential Policies for the Columbia Community
Columbia University is committed to operating with integrity in compliance with applicable laws, regulations, and policies. The University expects the highest standards of ethical conduct from the members of its community and is committed to upholding its reputation as one of the top academic and research institutions in the world.
Columbia expects members of the University community to inform the appropriate parties if they have observed unethical, illegal or suspicious activity.
This policy is intended to reiterate the University prohibition on retaliation against those who report or seek guidance on ethical or compliance issues. Reports must be made in good faith. “Good faith” does not mean that an individual has to be right. The individual however, must have an honest belief that the information provided is truthful based on the existing information.
Columbia University Non-Retaliation Policy
The purpose of this policy is to encourage members of the Columbia University community to report compliance and ethics concerns or to seek guidance on compliance and ethics concerns and to reinforce that the University prohibits retaliation against those individuals who report or seek guidance on possible ethical or compliance issues in good faith.
