Submit a 200- to 300-word essay in which you identify what ethics looks like in the context of your personal leadership as a Walden student. Specifically:
- What is ethics, and why is it important for you to behave ethically?
- How can you, as a Walden student, conduct yourself ethically and in alignment with the University’s five guiding principles of honesty, trust, fairness, respect, and responsibility?
- For each of the five guiding principles, provide at least one specific example of an action you will take. To support your proposed action examples, include at least two references to Walden’s Code of Conduct or other parts of the Student Handbook, or the other Learning Resources from this week that you feel are relevant. As a reminder, be sure to paraphrase, where possible, to demonstrate your understanding of the topic and provide the original sources of the information you reference in your essay.
