We implement the Code of Ethics(PDF, 328KB) advising the UG on ethics policy and ensuring compliance with Code provisions through regular review of governmental activities. Meeting once a month in an open session. All UG elected officials, officials, and employees must attend a basic ethics education training session within ninety days of their affiliation and a continuing ethics training session every three years thereafter.

The Code of Ethics serves as the basic rules and ethical principles for the day-to-day operations of the UG. For more information, read the Political Memorandum(PDF, 119KB)
