Who We Are and What We Do

The Office of Ethics and Compliance (OEC) serves to strengthen University-wide ethics and compliance by providing SUPPORT, COORDINATION & OVERSIGHT to distributed compliance programs throughout the University.

To achieve this purpose, the Office of Ethics and Compliance carries out the following functions:

  • Trains, educates and raises awareness of the Code of Conduct, Code of Conduct Values, the Ethics and Compliance Helpline, the importance of acting with integrity and speaking up;
  • Monitors, supports and coordinates individual ethics and compliance functions across campus;
  • Operates the Ethics and Compliance Helpline;
  • Partners with compliance professionals across campus to strengthen processes and controls;
  • Investigates or supports investigations related to alleged Code of Conduct and policy violations;
  • Monitors and coordinates remediation and corrective action plans;

We all play a role in contributing to a culture of ethics at Stanford by acting with integrity and speaking up with questions and concerns.
