To thrive in our community, new hires must be prepared to exercise sound ethical judgment, act with civility in the workplace, and take individual responsibility for the Institute’s policies and legal obligations. As Georgia Tech employees these expectations are as vital to the Institute’s long-term success as any professional skill or competency.

The Office of Ethics & Compliance supports and coordinates the many compliance-related activities at the Institute.
