Ethics Matters Managing Ethical Issues in Higher Education PROF. FORAM A. PATEL Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Institute of Technology, (Department of Applied Scienece and Humanities) Vasad, Gujarat (India) Introduction Higher education is a public as well as a private good and ethical awareness and practice does and should inform everything our institutions are and do. An institution that is consciously and deliberately ethically aware will play a valuable role in pursuing wider community and societal aims. Our staff and students should be enabled to handle the range of ethical dilemmas they will face in an increasingly multicultural society with global dimensions. Higher education should be regarded as an inherently valuable activity that sets out to benefit society. The National Committee of Inquiry into Higher Education in 1997 stated “we believe that the aim of higher education should be to sustain a learning society”1.
Academic excellence of students has been the goal of most higher education institutions. It is because of the assumption that those who excel in their academic endeavors will soon become competent professionals, contributing to the advancement of their respective industries and of the societies they are part of. Therefore, colleges and universities in particular exert all efforts in instilling in their students the significance of academic excellence, thus, challenging them to strive for it. It could also be said that the pursuit of academic excellence must be within the framework of “academic integrity,” which “involves all acts upholding ethical values and maintaining a good moral character within the academic environ and context” (Resurreccion, 2012, p. 34). Furthermore, it is through academic integrity that the public maintains its confidence in the protocol of any investigative endeavour and results as well as in the quality of learning offered at various levels of education (Bretag, 2013).
Academic communication can therefore be seamlessly referred to as scholarly communication. Whereas like any other part of communication, scholarly communication aims at transfer of information, its methods are highly structured and usually in educational settings. Academic communication should therefore be able to impart or interchange high quality thoughts, opinions and information through speech, writings or signs in relation to a scholarly institution or environment. On the other hand, Communication in social sciences and humanities tries to promote critical thinkers and creative minds through valuable education. Education is the best form and epitome of communication because it creates a society that is able to communicate in other forms not essentially itself.

More able students can be given more challenging work, less able students can access remedial lessons. the negative impact of ICT on education: I. There are large costs involved and poorer students / educational establishments establishments can end up being disadvantaged. This is often referred to as being a factor in the digital divide II. Students, and sometimes teachers, can get hooked on the technology aspect, rather than the subject content.
Ethics in education are crucial as it sets the standards of what is acceptable and what is not. It has been given a lot of significance over the years and this is why it has been included in the subject courses for students to understand ethics. In education, ethics is applicable on both teachers as well as students. While as teachers it is our duty to make students aware about these ethics in our virtues or moral education classes, at the same time, the school administrators with ministry of education ensures that we as teachers familiarise with ethics which are relevant to our profession. As ethical teachers, we play a very vital role in students’ life, by not just imparting knowledge but also helping in the development of a student’s personality.
Social Responsibility in general terms is the obligation for an Entity, Individual or an Organization, to act for the benefit of the society at large. It creates a balance between economic goals and social, cultural, and environmental issues (Enevoldson, 2012). It is a noble act performed by an entity to fulfill societal needs and to ensure development of a strong well-bonded community. Universities imparting Higher Education are not isolated from the rest of the world and therefore the above definition applies to them as well. A socially responsible university can do a whole lot to ensure a sound application of equality in its domain.
It’s important to know that many scholars admit how essential ICT in providing opportunities for students to learn and to operate in an information era. It was clear , as Yelland (2001) has pointed out that traditional educational environments are not appropriate for preparing learners to function or be productive in the workplaces of today’s society (ac cited in Bingimals 2009).
