Ethics vs. Fraud: Similarities, Differences, and Ensuring Accountability

Wednesday, February 21, 2018 1:00 PM ET


Despite the many risk management processes that institutions have in place, fraud still occurs regularly in higher education. This highly interactive presentation emphasizes the importance of establishing an ethical culture and promoting ethical decision making with the ultimate goal of preventing fraud. Although some unethical decision making does not constitute fraud, such actions still have institution-wide ramifications. The speakers will discuss these concepts, in addition to examining recent scenarios that have occurred at universities and colleges.


After participating in this program you will be able to:

  • Identify the differences between ethics and fraud.
  • Understand fraud trends—and their connections to unethical office cultures—to better recognize fraud risks in today’s higher education environment.
  • Put systems in place to help prevent fraud and unethical decision making from occurring at your own institution.
