We are pleased to inform you that as of 12/14/20, we have a new hotline vendor called ComplianceLine (Navex was our previous vendor). The hotline number remains the same (1-877-556-5356); however, the ComplianceLine URL for online reporting is different.
Please click on the orange action button at the top of the page to get more information.
As a reminder, events presenting an immediate threat to life or property should be reported via 911, not the Compliance Hotline. Additionally, for student concerns, please contact your college Dean’s Office or the Division of Student Affairs.
This summer, UF Research Integrity, in collaboration with RCR on Campus, will once again host a seminar series on Research Integrity and the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR). The series will cover a wide variety of topics including the research lifecycle, research misconduct, peer review, as well as publishing and authorship. We will also have several new offerings on topics such as Data Ethics for Trustworthy A.I., the Effects of Culture on the Research Lab Dynamics and Study Design and many others.
Please visit this website for the full list of seminars and registration information.
The latest issue of the Compliance Gazette is available now. Issue 8 is a special edition on ethics introduced by Dr. Ray Brian. It includes information about ethical decision-making, the new Chief Compliance and Privacy Officer for UF Health, and ethics related news from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the College of Engineering, and the Warrington College of Business. You can take an ethics-related quiz and read about the difference between Ethics and Compliance. If you have any questions, please e-mail us at UF-Compliance@ufl.edu.
