Ethics & Core Values

The University of Toledo is a community dedicated to excellence in teaching and the pursuit, generation, dissemination, and application of knowledge. At the same time, the University is committed to maintaining an environment marked by honesty, integrity and truth. As such, all members of the University community are expected to adhere to standards of ethical conduct, as prescribed by State and Federal laws.

Additionally, as faculty and staff of The University of Toledo, it is our responsibility to conduct our activities with the highest standards of conduct in mind. This requires our personal commitment to the University's core values.

You are encouraged to report allegations of business ethics lapses through your organizational chain command, without fear of retaliation.  Should this not be possible or feasible, the University has established an Anonymous Reporting Line that is staffed by a third-party firm so that you may self-report without disclosing your identity.  Alternately, the State of Ohio has established a Whistle-Blower Hotline to report business ethics lapses that span multiple State agencies.
