The Office of Clery Act Compliance has recently enacted a new travel portal that will need to be utilized for all university sponsored student travel that is either for more than one night or which occurs in spaces used at least on an annual basis. The information entered into the portal will provide the office with the information required to solicit crime statistics from the applicable law enforcement agencies that oversee each location. For more information, contact the Clery Act Compliance Office.
It is time to take the required Compliance and Ethics Training. The training module, called “Doing Your Part for the Gator Good!”, introduces the UF Compliance and Ethics Program and reviews important provisions of the Florida Code of Ethics. Additionally, the training discusses employees’ responsibilities and expectations for reporting compliance concerns, disclosing outside activities, and maintaining proper stewardship of University resources. All UF employees must take this training upon hire and every two years thereafter. You have until December 15, 2020 to take the training.
