Key Initiatives

Penn State Values & Culture Survey

The Ethics Research Center (ERC), the research arm of the Ethics and Compliance Initiative (ECI) – an independent nonprofit organization (www. ethics.org) – conducted a survey on behalf of The Pennsylvania State University. The Penn State Values & Culture Survey was distributed to all active members of the Penn State community; including students, faculty, staff, administrators, and technical service employees on all campuses. The purpose of the survey is to better understand the culture of the University and the values of the Penn State community. The results of the survey were released in September 2014.

Penn State University Compliance Plan

The Legal & Compliance Committee of the University Board of Trustees approved the Penn State University Compliance Plan in May 2014 and approved the current revised plan in September 2015.
