Code of Ethics on Education at the University of Tsukuba
The University of Tsukuba aims to be an open university in every sense. With its proactive initiatives to create a flexible education and research structure as well as a university system for the needs of the next generation, the University of Tsukuba is now a frontrunner of university reform in Japan. Universities are expected to act as bases of knowledge that hold the key to balanced development of human society. As a comprehensive university, the University of Tsukuba is capable of developing a wide range of educational research dealing with all aspects of knowledge. By setting “originality” and “independence” as the core educational concepts, our goal is to make students take the initiative for solving problems in the world. We established the “University of Tsukuba Education Standards (hereafter, “Tsukuba Standards”),”*1 as a guideline in order to achieve the goal. Faculty members need to comply with the following code of conduct*2 to meet the guideline.
*1 The Tsukuba Standards articulate the educational goals of the university based on its founding principles, and the path to achieve them. They consist of the following three divisions: General Education, Undergraduate Education and Graduate Education.
*2 Among this code of conduct, Article 1 defines the guideline for the whole, Article 2 ensures to respect student identity and protect the best interests of the students, Articles 3 and 4 set the obligation for continuous educational improvement, and Article 5 ensures to protect the personal information of students.
