Standard 5: Ethics








"Ethics, also known as ethos, operates on norms and imperatives, guiding individuals towards what they should do. Morality, on the other hand, pertains to the actual behavior and actions of individuals, as distinguished by Sproul (2015).







As an ambassador of Christ in this world and a leader in education, it is my duty to embody the principles of the kingdom from which I draw my identity. With the surname Christian, my allegiance lies not with the values of this world but with those of Jesus Himself.

In my daily interactions with peers, colleagues, and students, I am committed to demonstrating ethical conduct by upholding principles such as integrity and fairness. This commitment is essential to fostering a secure and trustworthy environment where the ideals of democracy, equity, and diversity can thrive among faculty, staff, and students alike.

"The necessity for ethical leadership is evident. The absence of ethical leaders in the world has led to widespread chaos" (G. Thurber, personal communication, April 25, 2018).

Recognizing the deficiencies in leadership, it becomes imperative to work towards solutions. I firmly believe that each of us has a role to play wherever we find ourselves. Let us strive for ethics in our own spheres, practicing morality and integrity without resorting to blame. My aim is to contribute positively and set the example I aspire to see in others.
