The Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) has long been engaged in promoting probity messages to tertiary students through different channels. Since 2007/08, the “ICAC Ambassador Programme” is organised to enhance ownership of tertiary students in integrity related issues.

The Programme has been extended to 20 local tertiary education institutions (TEIs) and about 150 students will be recruited as “ICAC Ambassadors”. This programme, which received favourable response from students and the institutions concerned, provided a platform for tertiary students to take the initiative to organise their own activities for disseminating integrity-related messages to their fellow students.
