Student –Teacher relationship is known since ancient times, and it is the sacred relation in India. Teachers are the backbone of country and is somehow responsible for the attitude of young generation. So, the need of implication in code of conduct and professional ethics in higher educational institutes is the need of hour. It provides a basis for ethical behavior in academic institutions to teaching staff as well as the students. Setting a professional code of Ethics provide a road map to approach and deal with problems in a morally and socially acceptable manner thereby imbibing honesty and integrity in the institutional ethics and work culture leading to a healthier work environment. Such code helps outline the mission and values of an organization and provides the groundwork for a pre-emptive warning in case of deviance/ non -compliance. Teachers as professionals engaged in the teaching learning process are required to show impartiality, integrity and ethical behaviour in the classroom and in their conduct with parents and colleagues. Code of ethics must be followed by institutions, so that teaching professionals maintain the integrity of their work by making the students an ethical base for the correct and incorrect. Apart from the UGC’s code of conduct guidelines, an independent professional ethics guidelines should be followed by each higher academic institution, so as to spread the concept of good and acceptable conduct among students. The department should conduct a professional ethics programme during the orientation session each year for newly admitted students, teachers and academic staff. It should prescribe the rules and regulations of appropriate and acceptable behavior. Thus, every organization must maintain a moral profile to gain credibility in the eyes of the stakeholders and build a good institutional image. Ethical conduct is to be practiced in all facets of the institutional operations and activities, policy decision making, implementation, and follow up. It is not only necessary to frame ethical standards but also to ensure that the standards and benchmarks set are followed in letter and spirit.

Code of Conduct and Professional Ethics in Higher Education Institutions

Discipline is the important factor of the education. Self discipline is the best discipline. The reputation of the college depends on the academic performance and behavior of the students. The majority of the students admitted to College come from the rural, economically backward and agriculture background for which higher education is still out of reach. Apart from teaching, learning activities, every college is always keen to imbibe the co-curricular, social, environmental and cultural values among the students. The institution always strives to create well-trained and socially conscious graduates by providing excellent infrastructure and the environment that promotes learning. Code of conduct is required for the students as well as teachers. To maintain discipline and to change the behavior of the students in college we need code of conduct. All students are expected to observe rules and regulations to enable the smooth working of the college and keep Harmony, Silence and Educational Atmosphere in the College premises. Higher Education institutions try to follow their own code of conduct. To develop discipline in the college and to show Mutual trust, team work, promotion of social capital, easy sharing of knowledge, skills and resources to create a vibrant society, respect and promote the perspectives, rights and dignity of each individual.

The Influence of Codes of Conduct on Ethical Behavior in Higher Education Institutions

In the contemporary generation, students must make a diverse range of ethical choices, many of which they are unsure of. Unfortunately, a lot of these issues have roots not just in their professional lives but also in their academic ones. A lack of knowledge about decision-making is the root cause of these problems. This problem presents an actual global dilemma. Codifying ethics can be a crucial step in promoting integrity and preventing unethical behavior in the workplace and higher education. However, there isn't enough proof to support the claim that behavior codes in colleges have any effect. Academic dishonesty has grown to be a significant problem in higher education institutions. Additionally, codes of conduct can serve as a foundation for morality and ethics in colleges and universities. This paper is to discuss the issues related to the code of ethics in online learning and offline learning, and the responsibilities of students, faculty, and administrators according to the code of professional ethics. Students cheat on exams and assignments while administrators and instructors are too busy to impose consequences under the codes of ethics. To protect the integrity of online teaching and learning, it is necessary to talk about these challenges from time to time. So, this paper suggests some potential improvements to achieve the goals of higher education institutions from an ethical behavioral aspect.

To have a good professional relationship with the colleagues, good teamwork, cooperation and collaboration is needed. Tolerance, patience, empathy, taking ownership, cooperate and giving assistance in the time of need is very important to have a good working environment. Managing private and personal affairs in a judiciary manner leads to a good balance between the professional and personal front. Recognizing the difference in aptitude and ability among students and colleagues through Universal Design Learning (UDL) will inculcate scientific temperament, spirit of enquiry, and ideals of democracy. It also helps in equity, equality, peace, sustainability and social justice. Henceforth, refraining from availing unnecessary favoritism encourages good citizenship and destroys enmities among different communities.
