To help maintain an ethical culture and preserve the public trust, the University System of Georgia (USG) recently made several revisions to the Conflicts of Interest and Conflicts of Commitment policy to provide additional detail and guidance to all employees in the USG system.
With a number of political campaigns under way, it’s important to be aware of the University System of Georgia’s (USG) policies on employee involvement.
According to the Board of Regents (BOR) Policy 6.14.1, the use of “USG materials, supplies, equipment, machinery, or vehicles in political campaigns is forbidden.” For example, sending or even forwarding a campaign-related email from a university-owned computer is not permitted.
The safety of Georgia Tech students, faculty, and staff is a top priority of the Institute.
Because Georgia Tech is an open urban campus with many students living in surrounding neighborhoods, Georgia Tech takes a proactive stance when notifying the campus community about safety concerns. For instance, while the Clery Act requires universities to alert campus communities to incidents occurring on campus, Georgia Tech goes beyond that to include areas adjacent to campus — a practice not conducted at many other universities.
