Employee Conduct

MIT is committed to responsible and ethical conduct in the classroom, the workplace and the laboratory. This commitment is reflected in many of MIT's policies and procedures, which serve the dual purposes of delineating the Institute’s core values and promoting conformance to applicable laws and regulations.

A new site brings together MIT's policies and procedures and serves as MIT's Code of Business Ethics and Conduct under federal law.  Use the site to learn about MIT policies and what to do if you have observed or suspect policy violations.
