Illinois Mandatory Ethics Training

All state public university employees are required to complete the OEIG-approved annual ethics training program for University employees. This program is unique and completely separate from the training provided to state agency employees. As such, any employee working for both a university and a state agency, will be required to complete both forms of the training. There are two basic training requirements in the Illinois State Officials and Employees Ethics Act. They are described in detail below.

Annual Training

The annual training is categorized into two categories (based on employment classification) and is available in both online and offline formats:

Faculty, Staff, and Graduate Assistant Training

This program is available online, annually, for 30 days during the month of October at: www.workplaceanswers.com/uillinois.  For more information regarding training dates, please see the office calendar.

For employees who do not have regular access to a computer in their workplace or who are unable to complete an online program, this course is also offered in a classroom setting in the spring and late summer/early fall each year. University Ethics and Compliance Office staff members host classroom training sessions in Urbana-Champaign and Chicago and this is arranged through management in the Facilities and Services, Physical Plant, Medical Center, and Housing units.  Scheduled dates and locations can be seen on the office calendar.

Seasonal, Temporary, and Medical Resident Training:

This program is available online, year-round(1/1-12/31) for completion at: Seasonal, Temporary and Medical Resident Training

An offline version of this program is available for completion and mailing to the University Ethics and Compliance Office at: Seasonal, Temporary and Medical Resident Training

New Hire Training

There is a new hire orientation within newHire that is a required item on the task list.  Employees must complete this training one time in their employment with the University (when they first begin employment). An offline version is available for employees who are unable to complete the task list item: Offline New Hire Ethics Orientation
