New ethics advisor available to WSU community

All university employees and officers are expected to comply with all laws and university policies concerning ethics, yet sometimes it can be difficult to determine how these rules apply to specific situations.

Employees can contact K. Raleigh Hansen, who has recently taken on the role of WSU’s ethics advisor, in addition to his work as an investigator/coordinator in Compliance and Civil Rights. Hansen is available to review questions, provide guidance on interpretation, and ensure employees act within the constraints of the law.

“I’m excited to take on this new role and look forward to providing guidance to the university community,” Hansen said.

The ethics advisor works closely with Internal Audit, Compliance and Risk Management, WSU Division of the Attorney General’s Office, and the Executive Ethics Board.

Employees can also familiarize themselves with their obligations under Washington state ethics laws through the State Ethics Law training, offered through Human Resource Services online training tool, Percipio, or by reviewing the resources, policies, and laws available on WSU’s Ethics website.

The Notices and Announcements section is provided as a service to the WSU community for sharing events such as lectures, trainings, and other highly transactional types of information related to the university experience. Accuracy of the information presented is the responsibility of those who submitted it. The self-uploaded posts are reviewed for compliance with state statutes and ethics guidelines but are not edited by the News and Media Relations unit for spelling, grammar or clarity.
