In this complex regulatory environment with rapidly increasing, laws, regulations, and policies at the federal and state level, keeping up with compliance regulations is increasingly difficult. It is important that we increase our awareness and understand the applicable regulatory requirements that apply to us as members of the WPI community. WPI is committed to a culture of integrity and ethical behavior. Ethical behavior is much more than simply following rules; it is doing the right thing. To choose the right action in a given situation, we need to have an understanding of the laws, regulations, and policies which apply to us as members of the WPI community. WPI wants to ensure that we have a working environment that enables each of us to conduct business in accordance with the highest ethical standards and in compliance with the law.
