Honor Code/Code of Conduct in International Institutions of Higher Education
Alahmad, Ala'
Journal of International Education and Leadership, v3 n1 Spr 2013
In today's society, students are faced with many ethical decisions about which they are uncertain. Unfortunately, many of these problems are rooted not only in their academic lives, but also in the workplace. These problems stem from a lack of knowledge concerning decision-making. This problem presents an actual global dilemma. Codifying ethics in the workplace and in higher education can be an important step to promote integrity and eliminate such behavior. In some universities students know that if they are caught cheating, they would disappoint their family, damage their reputations with their professors, and possibly leave a stain on their academic transcripts (Showghi, 2004). Nevertheless, the existence of these kinds of codes of ethics cannot guarantee that students all over the world will not commit academic dishonesty. For many of these students the burden of academic integrity begins within the educational institutions. The values taught and exhibited by professors, administrators, and faculty can later be instilled within the student and carried forward to their professional and workplace lives.
