MBS Code of Ethics
As valued members of our Maine Business School, we the faculty, staff, and students, mutually pledge to each other the following:
Honesty: We agree to exercise personal integrity in all aspects of our work, research, and studies. To be honest in fact, we agree to give credit where credit is due, to express our own opinions, and to do our own work in a timely fashion. Honesty requires clear and open communication about our commitments and performance of our work.
Respect: As each individual is inherently entitled to personal respect from others, we agree to show respect for others in our community by valuing diverse perspectives and by refraining from any form of harassment, disruption, lying, misstatements of fact, or other rude behavior that would exhibit hostility or disrespect for others. To show respect, we agree to listen carefully to one another, to read carefully, to review thoroughly, to promote each other’s works and aspirations, and to suspend judgment until properly informed of the facts.
Honor: We will endeavor to honor ourselves and our community by following all federal and state laws, our University policies and procedures, and our conscience as best as we are able. We agree to honor each other’s time, effort, and property at all times. We honor our MBS by producing quality work, both in the classroom and in our offices. We honor each other by explicitly recognizing our achievements, directly communicating issues, and treating one another politely.
We mutually pledge to implement this code by not tolerating intentional infractions in ourselves or others. Based on University policy, we will seek help and assistance from others in upholding these codes.
