The NAFSA Ethics Program. Ethical Practice in International Educational Exchange.
NAFSA - Association of International Educators, Washington, DC.
This booklet contains complete information on the NAFSA Ethics Program developed by NAFSA: the Association of International Educators. It includes the NAFSA Code of Ethics, the Principles of International Educational Exchange, and details of procedures for ethics-related complaints. The Association of International Educators promotes the exchange of students and scholars to and from the United States. An introduction describes the special features of international education work, and the organization and efforts of the Association. The Code of Ethics, approved in 1989, offers general guidelines for ethical conduct applicable to all Association members and details principles pertaining to many of their activities. The formal text of the Code is supplemented with commentary and practical suggestions in the margins. The Principles for International Educational Exchange establish institution-wide standards and address admission of foreign students, English programs and determination of English proficiency, services to foreign students and scholars, provision of community services and programs, and study abroad by American students. The final section presents procedures for handling complaints including reporting, the role of Association staff, Code interpretation by the Committee on Ethical Practice, investigation, communication with parties, consultation, hearings, sanctions, and appeals.
