Faculty Code of Conduct
As members of the SEM community, all faculty and staffs are responsible for sustaining the highest ethical standards of the school, the USTB and of the broader community in which we serve. As an educational practitioner, all faculty/staff members need to obey the USTB and the SEM’s rules and follow the procedures. It is the faculty members’ top priority to educate students with quality work. The faculty needs to conduct teaching and research according to the university and the school’s mission, vision and other detailed requirements. The following codes are the fundamental requirements for our faculty to obey (if some of the rules are contradictory with the ones of the university, the university’s rules should overwrite the ones of the school). Please read the rules carefully and use them as references when conducting daily assignments. For the ones who perform outstanding, the SEM has award policy to encourage positive behaviour, for the ones who fail to follow the codes; the SEM has several levels of punishment accordingly.
