Ethical Standards

Due to the very nature of Augustana College, it is important that all employees maintain the highest standards of business ethics. You should always avoid situations where your personal interest may conflict or appear to conflict with the interests of the College.

You should not accept gifts from customers or suppliers unless the gifts are of nominal value and it would be impractical to refuse or return them.

If you are employed in a department that purchases goods or services for the College, you must be careful to avoid situations which might appear to create a conflict of interest.

If you find yourself in a situation that may involve a conflict of interest or even the appearance of a conflict of interest, notify your administrator.
