Code of Conduct

Guiding our actions every day

Based on the strategy of SRH University Heidelberg and its Schools, the new university-wide Code of Conduct helps to ensure the implementation of the CORE principle.

The goal is to ensure that all stakeholders have a common understanding of the values, the behaviors and the common prospects for further development. The Code of Conduct expresses the expectations we set for ourselves and is also a promise to others:

  • The Principles ensure the implementation of the CORE principle
  • The Principles clarify our relationships with each other
  • The Principles serve as guiding recommendations for action
  • The Principles serve to secure economic and academic success
  • The Principles ensure transparency
  • The Principles are the ethical foundation of the university.
