Standards of Conduct and Procedures

Standards of conduct set out in The Texas A&M University System (system) policies and regulations are designed to communicate to all system employees an expectation and requirement of ethical conduct and compliance with all applicable laws, policies, regulations, rules and procedures.

Standards of conduct provide guidelines for business decision-making and behavior. System policies and regulations in addition to Tarleton rules and procedures are the official standards for university operations. Policies and procedures provide the framework within which all employees are expected to operate and apply to all university employees.

Maintaining Tarleton rules and procedures that address changing university needs and regulatory requirements is an ongoing process. All areas of the university are involved in their development. The approval and review processes are coordinated by Risk Management and Compliance.
