Ethical Principles, Practices, and Problems in Higher Education.
Baca, M. Carlota, Ed.; Stein, Ronald H., Ed.
Eighteen professionals analyze the ethical principles, practices, and problems in institutions of higher learning by examining the major issues facing higher education today. Focusing on ethical standards and judgements that affect decision-making and problem-solving, the contributors review the rights and responsibilities of academic freedom, ethical responsibility of faculty, and the teaching of ethics. They consider declining enrollments, problems in international higher education, implications of exoffenders in college, and ethics in college athletics. The use of computers, faculty conflicts of interest, impacts of industry and technology, collective bargaining, and ethical suspicions of faculty and administration also receive in-depth examination. Appended are: the 1976 Recommended Institutional Regulations on Academic Freedom and Tenure of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP); the AAUP Statement on Professionial Ethics; Professional Standards for Administrators of the American Association of University Administrators; and a Code of Ethics for the Professionals at SUNY/Buffalo adopted by the Professional Staff Senate of the State University of New York at Buffalo.
