Your code of ethics should be a polished statement of personal values that integrates concepts and ideas you have learned during the semester and will guide your decision-making as you face moral dilemmas and personal challenges in your future professional life. In addition, it should be a document that will aid you in communicating your ethics to your colleagues.
Your code must fit on one page, but may otherwise follow any format you like. It should be a clear, concise, and visually accessible statement of your ethics. The contents and format will be highly individualized – you should produce a document that is meaningful and pleasing to you.
