The Fogelman Code of Professionalism
Over recent months, a committee headed by Professor Ron Spahr with involvement from a wide range of College stakeholders has been creating a Code of Professionalism. The separate codes for students, faculty & graduate assistants, and staff, will be formerly unveiled at Fogelman Promise Day on April 15 and subsequently hung in the College. The three codes are presented below. Please do not hesitate to provide feedback about this initiative to Professor Ron Sphar (rspahr@memphis.edu) and /or Dean Rajiv Grover (rgrover@memphis.edu).
