The University recognises the contributions of titleholders and the value they bring to the University, including assisting in achieving its research and academic goals, and shaping its culture.
Whilst conferral of title establishes certain privileges, it also establishes duties, obligations and conditions on the titleholder and the University. It is important that privileges are appropriately used and compliance is achieved with the specific duties, obligations and conditions of the title.
Obligation, duties, conditions and benefits
Titleholders will be required, as part of the conditions of appointment, to comply at all times with the statutes, rules, by-laws, policies and procedures of the University (including the Code of Conduct). It is the responsibility for the Head of School to make you aware of your obligations, duties and conditions.
Behaviour and conduct
The University of Adelaide is committed to fostering a culture where our Values are at the heart of everything we do. These Values and the principles and behaviours that support them are enshrined in the Code of Conduct, Staff Values and Behaviour Framework and Behaviour and Conduct Policy.
Titleholders are expected to uphold University Values at all times, and in so doing, help to build and maintain a performance culture where excellence in teaching and research proliferates. Please visit, Code of Conduct, Staff Values and Behaviour Framework and Behaviour and Conduct.
The Conflict of Interest Procedure assists the titleholder to identify, disclose and manage any conflict of interest (actual, potential or perceived). Also to ensure that the titleholders observe the highest standards of behaviour and conduct and avoid any activity or interest that might reflect unfavourably on their own individual integrity and reputation, or upon the integrity and reputation of the University. For details please refer to Conflict of Interest procedure.
The Fraud and Corruption Control Policy reflects the commitment of the University to prevent fraud and corruption through effective risk management. It also recognises that effective management is best primarily achieved by raising the awareness of Personnel at all operational levels.
