2022-2023 Mandatory Compliance Training for Graduate Assistants

The University of Connecticut is committed to assuring the highest standard of integrity in all aspects of University life and in all University and University-sponsored activities.  As a result, all graduate assistants are required to take the three trainings detailed below. 


The Office of University Compliance is required to provide annual compliance training on the elements of the University’s compliance program; the University’s expectations that all will act in accordance with applicable laws, policies and standards; and obligations under the University Guide to the State Code of Ethics. This training, developed by the Office of University Compliance, provides realistic scenarios and examples of how issues of ethics and compliance may arise in your work as a Graduate Assistant. Through the application of learning demonstrated in the Apply Your Knowledge sections, you can gain a deeper understanding of addressing potential compliance and ethics concerns.

All Graduate Assistants are required to complete annual compliance training.  

The compliance training for Graduate Assistants is available through an online module found at Learning@Work.  A link will be emailed to each Graduate Assistant allowing access to the module. The training should take approximately 55 minutes to complete.      

Training content:  

  • The Code of Conduct 
  • University’s Guide to the State Code of Ethics  
  • Overview of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
