Ethics Policy

Throughout its history, Webster University has been committed to the highest standards of honesty and integrity in all its activities. This includes, among other concerns, the following

  • Avoiding conflicts of interest;
  • Dealing with others honestly and in good faith;
  • Preserving confidentiality; and
  • Compliance with applicable laws, rules, and regulations.

To reaffirm this commitment, the University has adopted an Employee Ethics Policy that applies to all faculty and staff who are part of our global community. You can view the Employee Ethics Policy here. We ask for your commitment to these high standards set by the University.
