Compliance at the University of Münster
Conduct that is lawful and guided by our shared values is part of the culture of the University of Münster.
A large number of external rules with legal binding force apply to activities in research, teaching, transfer and university support areas. This external framework is supplemented by various internal guidelines of the University. In addition, the University of Münster is committed to further improving its activities and aligning them with values such as diversity, equal opportunity and sustainability.
This framework of norms and values is not only intended to counter misconduct by individuals, but also to support the positive development and reputation of the university and the fulfilment of its social responsibility. By complying with the rules and committing to the shared values, all members and affiliated persons of the University contribute to both the reputation of the University and to a positive work and study atmosphere.
Adherence to statutory rules is a given. But at the University of Münster compliance is more than that, and also includes taking internal self-obligations and values into account.
