  • Integrity and impartiality (includes respect for persons, conflict of interest, personal relationships, privacy and confidentiality, receipt of benefits, external activities in the community etc).
  • Promoting the public good (includes carrying out of duties to high standards etc).
  • Accountability and transparency (includes duty of care, appropriate use of University resources, alcohol/drug abuse etc).
