Committee Update 2020
The Department of Justice investigation into NACAC’s Code of Ethics and Professional Practices (CEPP) and the resulting consent decree led us to evaluate the CEPP and weigh the risks to the association for continuing to uphold this as a mandatory document enforced by NACAC and its affiliates.
In March, the NACAC Board of Directors decided that it would be in the best interest of the association to create a “best practices” document that maintained the values and ethical practices of the current CEPP but did not establish mandatory practices. The Board of Directors charged the NACAC AP Committee with creating the new best practices document.
The AP Committee has completed a first draft of a revised code of ethics titled NACAC’s Guide to Ethical Practice in College Admission. The AP Committee believes that this new guide sustains the long-held values of NACAC members while recommending best practices to support those values. Unlike the CEPP and the Statement of Principles of Good Practice before that, if approved by the Assembly, the recommended practices in the Guide to Ethical Practice in College Admission are not mandatory and will not be enforced.
Before presenting a final draft to the Assembly for its vote, the NACAC Board of Directors and the AP Committee are asking for member feedback on the proposed guide. Members will have the opportunity to review and comment on the draft starting June 30 and continuing through July 15.
Please review the draft of the Guide to Ethical Practice in College Admission and submit your comments when you receive the survey.
