The principles and values of the Fresno City College Code of Ethics and Excellence guide the faculty, students, and staff in the achievement of a profound appreciation of and respect for the dignity and worth of each member of our community of learners in responding to the trust conferred on the college by the public.
We are guided by the standards and principles established by our respective professional associations and organizations in our effort to create an ethical college community.
Fairness: In our relationships with each other, we will be fair and just in our decisions and actions by carefully weighing the circumstances in an equitable manner.
Civility: We adhere to standard conventions of civility and regard of others. We achieve an open working and learning environment when each community member feels secure enough to participate in the free exchange of ideas. We ensure an honest and supportive climate which serves the interests of the institution and protects the well-being of all individuals.
Integrity: In order to support excellence in learning, we will act in the college’s best interests. As a community dedicated to providing education, we demonstrate professional integrity and exemplary behavior in all that we do.
Respect: We demonstrate a high regard for the rights, diverse opinions, and life styles of all community members. It is our responsibility to establish a climate of mutual respect to protect the rights and freedoms of others.
Trust: The development of trust relies on our ability to treat others equitably in a non-exploitive manner.
