The senate published the paper, Faculty as Professionals: Responsibilities, Standards and Ethics, in Spring 2002.
Whereas the Academic Senate in 1994 received an ethics policy in the paper entitled "Faculty Ethics: Expanding the AAUP Ethics Statement," and
Whereas this policy was meant to guide the community college faculty in the performance of their duties and their interactions with colleagues, staff, and students, and
Whereas the distribution and the implementation of this policy are important for maintaining professional relations and a good academic climate on campus,
Resolved that the Academic Senate direct the Executive Committee to develop a model for an ethics and professional standards process and committee structure to recommend to local academic senates to help them implement the Academic Senates paper "Faculty Ethics: Expanding the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) Ethics Statement."
