Center for Government Compliance and Ethics at Rutgers University aims to put principles back at forefront of public service
Rob Scott – Gloucester County Times – February 5, 2011
What’s the point of having rules if you’re not making sure people are following them?
That’s the question behind the creation of the new Center for Government Compliance and Ethics at Rutgers University’s School of Law.
Donna Boehme, a member of the center’s advisory board, said government bodies have “a huge issue of credibility.”
“When you really think about it, ultimately, unless those who are governing … have an approach to compliance, ethics and integrity, there’s a disconnect,” said Boehme.
Rayman Solomon, dean of the School of Law and faculty sponsor of the new center, said ethics and compliance programs “grew up in the private sector.”
