University of Lincoln Code of Ethics
The Code of Ethics is founded upon the University of Lincoln’s Mission which states:
“A University looking to the future where we serve and develop our local, national and international communities by creating purposeful knowledge and research, confident and creative graduates and a dynamic and engaged workforce.”
In pursuing this mission, the members of the University are guided by a shared commitment to behaviour and practices that conform to the highest ethical standards. The University of Lincoln has developed this Code of Ethics to record the ways in which individuals at Lincoln, through their personal relationships, activities and conduct, create and sustain a community that exemplifies the University’s values.
The University of Lincoln’s Code of Ethics is a broad statement of the ethical principles, values and behaviours that govern relationships and actions (including a failure to act in appropriate circumstances) both within the University and between members of the University and parties external to the University.
The Code is also intended to assist staff to identify and resolve ethical issues that might arise in the course of their employment. It is designed to guide them in their dealings with colleagues, students, the University’s partners, third parties and stakeholders.
The Code of Ethics records are a set of general principles, rather than a series of detailed prescriptions. It complements and informs, but does not exclude or modify, the legal rights and duties of staff.
