Ethics – Code of Conduct

As university and public employees, we must take care to exhibit the highest ethical standards of conduct in carrying out our duties and to avoid rigorously any conduct that might produce even the appearance of the misuse of our Rutgers positions to further our own personal interests.  To guide our faculty and staff on the core principles of expected ethical behavior, the university adopted a Rutgers Code of Conduct and Plain Language Guide. Please review our Code and Plain Language Guide below to become familiar with the standards that govern university behavior.
