On February 8, 2024, the Kyiv National University of Technologies and Design took part in the presentation of the results of the implementation of the academic discipline «Anti-corruption and integrity» in the media hub of the National Agency for the Prevention of Corruption.
The university discipline «Anti-corruption and Integrity» was developed by the team of the Office of Integrity of the National Agency for the Prevention of Corruption within the framework of the «Transparent Universities» project and aims to provide higher education students with systemic knowledge and understanding of the concepts of integrity and corruption.
The academic discipline «Anti-corruption and integrity» was studied by almost 1,000 students of higher education in ten institutions of higher education during the 1st semester of the 2023/2024 academic year. Its study helps students of higher education learn about the concept of corruption, anti-corruption policy of Ukraine, international experience in preventing and countering corruption, integrity and public control, etc.
Currently, the goal of the Integrity Office of the National Agency for the Prevention of Corruption is to extend this course to all higher education institutions of Ukraine.
The implementation of anti-corruption discipline in institutions of higher education is provided for in the State Anti-Corruption Program for 2023-2025.
As a result of the event, an agreement was reached for further cooperation between the Kyiv National University of Technologies and Design and the National Agency for the Prevention of Corruption regarding the implementation of projects related to anti-corruption activities.
