Each member of the Georgia Tech community is responsible for speaking up and reporting concerns. Unethical behavior depletes resources, morale, and culture, and it works against the values that Georgia Tech has established as a leading academic and research institution.
Georgia Tech works to maintain a positive and productive working and learning environment; therefore, each report of unethical behavior is taken seriously and investigated with care and concern.
