Commitment to Ethical Practice of the College of Education and Human Services

The professions of Counseling & College Student Personnel, Criminal Justice, Educational Leadership and Special Education, Teacher Education, Exercise Science, and Social Work and Gerontology comprise the College of Education and Human Services. This College is charged with upholding a learning environment in which faculty, administration, staff, and students work together to develop a lifetime commitment to being of service to others. Together, we define who we are and who we aspire to become as members of the College of Education and Human Services community.

Each of the professions represented in the College are guided by ethical codes of professional practice enforced through the prescribed channels of its profession. We acknowledge and respect the individual codes and standards of ethical conduct that are prescribed by the disciplines of the College. From these codes our College has created a unifying ideal that consists of seven ethical statements of principle. These statements reflect the fundamental belief that intraprofessional collaboration provides a more comprehensive service system to children, families, clients, students, and institutions than individual disciplines acting in isolation. The administration and faculty of this College believe that it is important to actively uphold the following standards of ethical conduct throughout their careers:

  • Honoring, and dignifying ourselves and others;
  • Valuing differences among and between us; 
  • Advocating for and acting to attain social justice; 
  • Using discretion vested in the privileges of our positions appropriately; 
  • Performing our jobs at the highest standard; 
  • Upholding the trust of those with whom we work; 
  • Respecting the work of other professionals.

Individually, in order that others may know who I am, what I believe, and know of my works, I, with all others here, will be accountable for the privileges and responsibilities that accompany my membership in the College of Education and Human Services.
