Ethics vs. Fraud: Similarities, Differences, and Ensuring Accountability
Sunday, July 30 | 3:45 – 5 p.m. CT
Speakers: Jean Bushong, Principal, CliftonLarsonAllen, and Patricia Snopkowski, Chief Audit Executive, Oregon State University

Despite the many risk management processes that institutions have in place, fraud still occurs regularly in higher education. This highly interactive presentation emphasizes the importance of establishing an ethical culture and promoting ethical decision making with the ultimate goal of preventing fraud. Although some unethical decision making does not constitute fraud, such actions still have institution- wide ramifications. The speakers will discuss these concepts, in addition to examining recent scenarios that have occurred at universities and colleges.

Tuesday, August 1 | 9 – 10:15 a.m. CT
