Questrom Code of Conduct

Questrom is proud of the School’s culture, and to this end enforces a code of conduct to maintain and reinforce our culture of integrity, mutual respect, and cooperation. The School has a zero tolerance policy for breaches of ethics and cultural norms and such breaches have consequences for merit review and faculty support. The Questrom cultural code specifies the following expectations of all faculty:

  • Exhibit professional behavior toward colleagues, staff, students and other University employees
  • Treat all members of the Questrom community with dignity, courtesy and respect
  • Act in a manner that builds and does not harm the School reputation
  • Act with integrity
  • Maintain a presence on campus
  • Engage in the activities of the School
  • Be available for colleagues, students and administrative responsibilities
  • Be responsive to department and administrative communications
  • Adhere to cultural norms for teaching, exams, and grading (see Merit Review Manual, Part III: Evaluation of Teaching for details)

Support after 6:00 p.m.

Adjunct faculty should be aware that traditional office support is not available in the evenings. As such, photocopying and meetings with program staff should be planned during regular office hours. Planned IT requests such as lecture capture or video conferencing must be made through questromhelp@bu.edu with at least 24 hours’ notice, so that adequate IT staffing arrangements can be made.

Immediate support involving unplanned technological issues in classrooms should be requested through our Help Desk by calling 617-353-9858, or simply 3-9858 from a campus phone.

For emergency assistance of any kind, our campus police are on hand throughout the day/night and can be reached at 617-353-2121 (3-2121 from a campus phone).
