The annual acknowledgement of the NKU Values & Ethical Responsibilities can be completed two ways. 

  • For current NKU faculty, staff, and student employees, the acknowledgement will be completed during the annual Compliance Refresher course. 
  • For newly hired NKU faculty and staff, the initial acknowledgement will be completed at the completion of the Workplace Ethics course which must be completed within the first 90 days of employment.
