Compliance & Ethics Week 2015

November 2-6, 2015


Compliance Begins with You!

This year will be the 10th anniversary of National Compliance and Ethics Week and the first time we will be formally celebrating it here at the Research Foundation!

Our goal is to highlight the importance of Compliance and Ethics at both the Research Foundation and SUNY, and to focus specifically on the supporting role that compliance plays in various aspects of our business.

Why Celebrate?

By celebrating Compliance & Ethics week, we increase awareness in ways that reinforce not just specific rules and regulations, but an overall culture of compliance and ethics and commitment to good corporate citizenship.

Hear what some of your colleagues had to say:
Jeffrey Dunbar, Director, STOR (Office of Science, Technology Transfer and Economic Development), University at Buffalo
Emily Kunchala, Vice President, Internal Audit, RF Central Office
Mark Abbey, Associate Director, Strategy & Planning, RF Central Office
Steven Wood, Assistant Director, Innovation and Partnerships, RF Central Office

Schedule of Events

The Research Foundation will host brown bag sessions covering a variety of compliance “hot topics!” Please join us in the 6th floor Conference Room each day November 2-6, 12-1pm or logon to view us live via WebEx.
