Code of Ethics


The Council for Academic Standards guidelines for academic advising require that advisors:

  • maintain confidentiality (compliance with FERPA)
  • adhere to the highest principles of ethical behavior with students and in the use of technology
  • serve students on a fair and equitable basis
  • avoid any personal conflict of interest so advisors can deal objectively and impartially with issues
  • handle funds responsibly
  • refrain from any form of harassment
  • recognize their advising expertise and refer students when necessary
  • impart accurate information while complying with institutional policies and rules (CAS Standards, 2005).
  • perform their duties within the limits of their training

The NACADA Core Values challenge advisors to:

  • treat students and colleagues with respect
  • honor the concept of academic freedom
  • learn about and understand the institutional mission, culture, and expectations and interpret the institution’s values, mission, and goals to the community
  • obtain education and training (NACADA Core Values, 2004 and Nutt, 2007, Legal and Ethical Issues).
