The Virtues of Organizational Integrity
Young, Robert B.
New Directions for Student Services, n135 p5-14 Fall 2011
In this chapter, the author begins by describing the organizational virtues that are associated with structural and ethical integrity. Virtues are the focus instead of behaviors, traits, or values, because virtues contain all these components: the stable characteristics of traits, the behaviors that are evidence of traits, and the values that guide behaviors (Trevino, Hartman, & Brown, 2000). Next, the virtues of structural and ethical integrity are related to collegial, empirical, and political archetypes of higher education institutions. The structural and ethical integrity of student affairs is the topic of the third part of the chapter, and it concludes with some suggestions for organizational analysis and practice.
