University Integrity Survey

  

The ICAC University Integrity Survey concluded on Friday 3 April 2020. The Commissioner thanks all participants who shared their thoughts, feelings and experiences regarding potential corruption or inappropriate conduct in their university.

In line with the Commissioner’s function to prevent or minimise corruption, misconduct and maladministration, ICAC staff regularly conduct research about public administration and the way it is governed.

In March 2020, many public officers from Flinders University, The of University of Adelaide, and University of South Australia participated in the ICAC University Integrity Survey. Their responses will provide crucial information that will help promote and protect the integrity of higher education and its vital function in South Australia.

The Commissioner thanks all the participants who shared their thoughts, feelings and experiences regarding potential corruption or inappropriate conduct in their university workplace.

What happens to the survey results?

The Commissioner’s research staff will analyse the survey data to gain an understanding of perceptions and attitudes regarding potential corruption and inappropriate conduct within South Australia’s tertiary education sector.

The Commissioner will publish a publicly available report that brings together responses from all three universities. This is expected to be complete in August this year.

Results from previous ICAC surveys are available online.

Something to report?

Employees and contractors of Flinders University, The University of Adelaide and University of South Australia are public officers for the purpose of the ICAC Act and have an obligation to make a report to the Office for Public Integrity (OPI) if they think a South Australian public officer has broken the law, or acted in a way that is seriously inappropriate or negligent.
