Rutgers expects from all employees, collaborative partners, donors, and key suppliers to conduct themselves with integrity and respect, and to maintain the highest ethical standards in their actions. Rutgers has laid down these standards in the Integrity Framework.
The integrity framework consists of:
To ensure that we can enforce these codes, the integrity framework also has a complaints procedure and a whistleblowing policy.
Our code of conduct and integrity framework are always evolving. The code of conduct and the grievance procedure are there so we can hold each other accountable. Ethics and norms are refined by talking to each other. Rutgers regularly enters into discussions with employees and other stakeholders to develop and strengthen our framework of standards.
The integrity framework has been drafted with the Partos and CBF guidelines in mind. Rutgers is Partos 9001:2015 version 2018 certified and is annually reviewed on the implementation of the integrity policy.
