Part 2.15: Ethical Standards


The University expects all of its members (individually and collectively), its collaborative partners and those providing a service to the University to be committed to upholding The Principles of Public Life.  These principles include Selflessness, Integrity, Objectivity, Accountability, Openness, Honesty and Leadership.


Members of the University must not use their authority or office for personal gain and must always seek to uphold and enhance the reputation of the University. Any personal interest which may impinge on a member’s impartiality in any matter relevant to their duties should be declared to their Executive Dean, Executive Director or other appropriate authority.


A University Ethics Framework shall be developed to facilitate the embedding of the University’s ethical values and principles into all its activities and to guide behaviour of members of the University. The framework shall identify the key areas in which ethical considerations may arise and set out the responsibilities of individuals, groups, committees and other bodies in these areas.
