Corporate ethics and values underpin the manner in which a higher education (HE)provider operates. A provider risks receiving adverse publicity and incurring reputational damage if its conduct and standards do not reflect the ethics and values expected of it. Governing bodies need to ensure that the provider’s reputation is not placed at risk by actions which are not aligned with acceptable ethics and values.
