BELA Working Group:

Ethics & Compliance Assessment Framework for Higher Education

Leaders from ethics & compliance offices at universities working together to develop a framework for an assessment for the higher education community.


Members represent a range of college and university systems from private, single-campus entities to larger, multi-campus systems.


Every two-to-three weeks


Members have been completing a version of Ethisphere’s ethics and compliance program assessment built for corporate entities and are then interviewed on how the assessment might be tailored for those in higher education environments. After reviewing Higher Ed assessment benchmarks versus the World's Most Ethical Companies Honorees, the group will continue to meet and work on creating questions and editing the assessment framework.


Anticipated outcome will be a design for a higher education ethics and compliance program assessment tool.
