SUBJECT:  COMMITMENT TO INTEGRITY
Policy XXXXX
 

A new policy to read as follows is adopted:

 

The Board of Regents holds itself and its units accountable for integrity, accuracy, and honesty in all activities throughout the Montana University System. This includes the Board's expectation that it will receive truthful, accurate information from board members, staff, and all other participants in board activities. The Board specifically discourages carelessness with facts and inappropriate or misleading representations in all presentations to, or communications with and among, the Board.  The Board also expects University System operations, including those involving the Board, to be characterized by a willingness to voluntarily observe and maintain legal and ethical commitments, by respectful interaction, and by congruence between comment and actual practice.
