Mahidol University has encouraged a good governance, for example, the preparation of Mahidol University's Anti-Corruption Action Plan 2019-2022 to be used as a guideline for the prevention and suppression of corruption, the announcement of “No Gift Policy” to encourage the core value of integrity (I), emphasizing on the risk that may lead to all corruption forms under the good governance operating to be a strength and sustainable organization. Moreover, there is a training to educate and communicate the good governance to faculties and departments using ITA.
