Walden University



Ethics is involved in every decision you make; it requires you to make the right versus the wrong choice based on a set of values and criteria. It is a given that ethical leadership—both at a personal level and an institutional level—should be demonstrated in higher education institutions. For this discussion, think of an ethical dilemma or conflict that an administrator, department, or institution may face given competing priorities and interests. This may be a dilemma that you or a colleague have experienced in the past, or you may construct one based on your knowledge of financial management in higher education.

Post your description of the dilemma, including who and what the conflict involved, what the ethical response should have been, and what values and considerations guided your decision. Be sure to support your response with references to this week’s Learning Resources and personal references where applicable.
