Mandatory annual ethics training begins Friday

Mandatory 2021 annual ethics training for all SIU Carbondale faculty, staff, graduate assistants, undergraduate assistants, volunteers, student employees and extra help employees takes place Oct. 1-29 on the D2L platform. School of Medicine employees located on the Carbondale campus will complete training using HealthStream. 

As state employees, we have a duty to conduct ourselves in a manner that will maintain and strengthen the public’s trust and confidence in the integrity of Southern Illinois University. Furthermore, we are obligated to follow state law, which includes the State Officials and Employees Ethics Act. Annual ethics training is a state law requirement and a condition of your employment. The training program is intended to familiarize you with the laws and rules that apply to functions you perform on behalf of the University and the State of Illinois. 

To log in, access the D2L platform at using the Google Chrome browser, select “SIU Account Login”, and sign in with your SIU account login information. If you have registered for the university’s multi-factor authentication (MFA) also known as DUO, options may appear. If so, select one of the options to complete the login process. You will then find the “Southern Illinois University Ethics Training (2021)” course on the “Fall 2021” tab in “My Courses” on your D2L homepage. Review of the quick reference guides for accessing the ethics training is recommended. The guides are available in the ethics training in D2L and on the Labor and Employee Relations website:
