In this difficult time when even our President makes misslips when it comes to upholding our core values and using words, we suggest that before you use your words you visit the University Compliance Office, whose mission is to enhance a culture of compliance and ethics at the university and balance Cornell’s core values of free expression and creating a community of belonging,
The University Compliance Office provides resources to
navigate Cornell’s complex regulatory and ethical responsibilities and to help stakeholders determine the right course of action when acting on behalf of the university. Our office is focused on upholding Cornell’s core values, facilitating solutions, enhancing a culture of compliance and ethics, and balancing compliance with mission-driven activities. The office was established in January 2020 at the request of President Martha E. Pollack. The University Compliance Office is administered by the Chief Compliance Officer, who reports to the Executive Vice President and the Audit, Risk, and Compliance Committee of the university’s Board of Trustees.
University Compliance Office staff are dedicated to supporting Cornell’s mission of learning, discovery, and engagement.
Remember, misslips with your words that are bound to happen when speech is not policed, are violent and cause real harm. In order to create a culture of belonging, the Babbling Bear suggests that you follow all the recommendations given by the Office of Compliance. The advice is free and worth every penny.
