A MESSAGE FROM THE CHANCELLOR
Dear Faculty and Staff:
At Vanderbilt University, patients, students, parents, and society at-large have placed their faith and trust in the faculty and staff who comprise this great institution. In carrying forward our noble mission of educating, healing, and advancing scientific research, it is vital that we hold a deep commitment to the highest levels of ethical standards and lawful conduct.
The Vanderbilt University Compliance Program articulates specifically what is expected of us, and completing the Standards of Conduct training will ensure that you have a thorough understanding of institutional standards of integrity and honesty, as well as the laws, rules and regulations specific to your profession. I urge you to read the information on this Web site carefully and to ingrain these important principles into your daily work. For through our individual efforts to uphold these practices and obey the laws, we collectively help Vanderbilt achieve its promise as an academic and healthcare leader.
