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. Those policies and procedures serve the dual purposes of delineating MIT's core values and promoting conformance to applicable laws and regulations.

MIT believes that it is important for members of the MIT community to be aware of these policies and procedures and for individuals and organizations outside of the MIT community to know of MIT's dedication to responsible and ethical practices and conduct. This site brings together MIT's policies and procedures that, individually and taken as a whole, embody such commitment, and it serves as MIT's Code of Business Ethics and Conduct under federal law.

No policy can foresee every situation in which a question about ethical or business conduct will arise. If you have questions, require resources or advice or have observed or suspect violations of MIT policy, you are encouraged to contact any of the following offices:

Research Administration Services

Office of the General Counsel

Vice President for Human Resources

Vice President for Finance

Risk Management & Compliance Services

Institute Auditor

Ombuds Office

Report a Concern Anonymously:

MIT has established an anonymous reporting Hotline hosted by a third party vendor called Ethicspoint. For additional questions about the Hotline please contact Kate Miller, Institute Compliance Officer.
