Standards of Conduct Guide

Under revision

The Standards of Conduct Guide will be available in September 2014. Until then, employees are encouraged to review the UT System Standards of Conduct Guide.


The purpose of the Standards of Conduct Guide (SOCG) is to emphasize the necessity for and the responsibility of all employees at UT Dallas to be aware of how to perform their duties and responsibilities in compliance with applicable provisions of federal and state laws, regulations, and policies, and with the policies, rules and regulations of the Board of Regents of The UT System and UT Dallas.

Section 2113.014 of the Texas Government Code requires UT Dallas to give this information to all new employees. The information covers the standards of conduct required of all State Employees.

The SOCG is an outline of some of the laws, policies, rules and regulations that are pertinent to the conduct of employees of UT Dallas. Although the SOCG addresses a number of specific laws, policies, rules and regulations, it is not intended to be a comprehensive list of legal and ethical standards, rather it provides employees with information about and source references for the laws, policies, rules and regulations that have a direct effect on the University and its operations. Specific ethical or compliance questions of employees should be directed to the employee’s supervisor, or the UT Dallas Compliance Officer.

The SOCG will be available on this website after it is revised.
