This research examines the roles of ethics in the relations between individual attitudes and corruption in Iraqi universities. Correlation analysis and linear regression are used to estimate the relations among individual attitudes, ethics, and corruption. Gleaned from 600 female and male workers, and analyzed with the SPSS software, the experimental data con?rm that Individual attitude has negative associated with corruption. Also, ethics has negatively associated with corruption. Also, ethics mediates the relations between individual attitudes and corruption. But, this study has many limitations such as the generalizability of our outcome might be limited because we surveyed employees of a single sector in a single educational sector; this calls for future studies to verify the stability of our ?ndings across sectors and firms. Second, supported data type may be accompanied by biasness in the results because it largely dependent on the individual sensations and feelings in an instant answer. This may confer a state of uncertainty and consistency in the answers.
