The Loma Linda University student activities office acknowledges the guidelines of the American College Personnel Association (ACPA) in the development of this statement of ethical principles. Since the five ethical principles described in A Statement of Ethical Principles and Standards of the American College Personnel Association (ACPA) are central to the profession of serving students, they are repeated and endorsed here.
1. ACT TO BENEFIT OTHERS
Service to humanity is the basic tenet underlying student affairs practice. Hence, student affairs professionals exist to: promote healthy social, physical, academic, moral, cognitive, career, and personality development of students; bring a developmental perspective to the institution's total educational process and learning environment; contribute to the effective functioning of the institution; and provide programs and services consistent with this principle.
2. PROMOTE JUSTICE
Student affairs professionals are committed to assuring fundamental fairness for all individuals within the academic community. In pursuit of this goal, the principles of impartiality, equity, and reciprocity (treating others as one would desire to be treated) are basic. When there are greater needs than resources available or when the interests of constituencies conflict, justice requires honest consideration of all claims and requests and equitable (not necessarily equal) distribution of goods and services. A crucial aspect of promoting justice is demonstrating an appreciation for human differences and opposing intolerance and bigotry concerning these differences. Important human differences include, but are not limited to, characteristics such as age, culture, ethnicity, gender, disabling condition, race, or religion.
3. RESPECT AUTONOMY
Student affairs professionals respect and promote individual autonomy and privacy. Students' freedom of choice and action are not restricted unless their actions significantly interfere with the welfare of others or the accomplishment of the institution's mission.
4. BE FAITHFUL
Student affairs professionals are truthful, honor agreements, and are trustworthy in the performance of their duties.
5. DO NO HARM
Student affairs professionals do not engage in activities that cause either physical or psychological damage to others. In addition to their personal actions, student affairs professionals are especially vigilant to assure that the institutional policies do not: hinder students' opportunities to benefit from the learning experiences available in the environment; threaten individuals' self-worth, dignity, or safety; or discriminate unjustly or illegally.
The private conduct of a staff member (either student or permanent employee) of the student activities office is a personal matter to the same degree as is any other individual's, except when such conduct compromises or reflects upon the fulfillment of his/her professional responsibilities.
It is acknowledged that no statement of ethical standards can anticipate all situations that have ethical implications. When employees or volunteers of the student activities office are presented with situations not specifically addressed, they should base their decisions on the ACPA endorsed ethical principles.
