More Course Details

Ethics isn't some abstract concept or series of principles that can be compartmentalized into the work environment. Ethics is who you are — you either have ethics or you don't.

Explore integrity-based cultures, inherent character questions, and common crises of conscience. Focus on the very personal nature of ethics, and why it is impossible to separate ethics from the individual.

Get tools for identifying your core values. Explore the "Principles to Which We Aspire" portion of the AICP Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct and gain a new perception of personal responsibility to your profession, those around you, and yourself.
