Thank you for your commitment

Over 2,500 faculty and staff completed the UM Learn course on fraud and financial irregularity reporting policy

December 14, 2022 — 

Thank you for your commitment to familiarize yourself with the new fraud and financial irregularity reporting policy at the University of Manitoba! As of December 9, 2022, over 2,500 UM faculty and staff have completed the associated course in UM Learn.

The overwhelming participation in the online course demonstrates our collective commitment to the highest standards of honesty, ethical conduct and fiduciary responsibility.  

Though the promotional campaign concluded Nov. 18, the online course entitled Financial Stewardship & Ethical Conduct will remain on UM Learn. If you have not yet had a chance to complete the course, please take some time to complete it now.

The course is a simple and helpful 45-minute video that explains financial stewardship, ethical conduct, fraud and financial irregularities and how to recognize them. There is no quiz component. 

All members of the UM community are strongly encouraged to review the policy and complete the associated UM Learn course. As members of the UM community, we all have an obligation to report good faith concerns or suspicions of fraud and irregularities and to follow processes to report concerns to protect funds and property owned by or in the care of the University. 

A reminder that the course is mandatory for all staff reporting under: the Office of the President; Provost and Vice-President (Academic) – members of the Provost’s Office; Vice-President (Administration); Vice-President (External); Vice-President (Indigenous); and Vice-President (Research and International).

Please note: Course attendance is also being recorded in VIP on a weekly basis; managers can review progress in their areas through the Manager’s portal in Employee self-service.
