Code of Conduct

Student Code of Conduct for Community Engagement in a QEP Course

Through your participation in a Reflective Service-Learning course and your involvement with community agencies, not only do you play a vital role in the implementation of Eckerd’s QEP, but be mindful you also play a critical role in the development or strengthening of a campus-community partnership. You represent Eckerd College in the community and should act in a way that casts a positive reflection of the college’s mission and values.

Please, enhance both your learning and the college’s image in the public eye- demonstrate what it means to be an Eckerd student by abiding by the following volunteer code of conduct:

As an Eckerd College student serving with a community agency through my participation in a Reflective Service-Learning course I will:

  • Represent Eckerd College with pride, dignity, and professionalism.
  • Conduct myself in a respectful and responsible manner.
  • Work cooperatively with fellow volunteers, employees, supervisors, and clients at the partnering agency.
  • Dress appropriately while serving with the agency and will follow the agency’s suggested dress code.
  • Show respect to all persons, property, and ideas throughout my participation with the agency.
  • Respect the privacy of persons served by the agency and will maintain confidential sensitive, private and personal information.
  • Comply with policies, regulations, and standards upheld by the agency.
  • Follow the expectations and procedures outlined by the agency.
  • Be an active, hardworking participant and will perform tasks assigned to me with diligence and care.
  • Maintain open and professional communication with the agency in regards to service schedule, responsibilities, and course requirements.
  • Be consistent in adhering to the service schedule agreed upon with the community partner.

By electing this course, you've made a commitment to enhancing your educational experience that should be taken seriously both in the classroom and in the community. Take advantage of the opportunities offered by your service-learning project: if you recognize the transformative potential of the course, your learning will be strengthened and your experience will have greater significance.
