Code of Ethics and Employee Conduct
Montgomery College is committed to fostering an environment of integrity where ethical standards are consistently applied by all. A policy entitled Code of Ethics and Employee Conduct was adopted by the Board of Trustees on June 19, 2017. The purpose of the Montgomery College Code of Ethics is to express the ethical standards for faculty, staff, and administrators: Accountability, Civility and Collegiality, Compliance, Fairness, Honesty, Respect, and Stewardship.
Support of the Montgomery College Code of Ethics will serve to enhance an ethical environment and promote civility, excellence, and integrity in our work and with one another. It is every employee’s responsibility to uphold the Code of Ethics and to encourage high standards of ethical behavior and decision-making by all.
