NPSIA Statement of Values and Principles
NPSIA aims to foster a community of excellence in research and teaching in international affairs. This community, including NPSIA faculty, instructors, administrative staff and students, will encourage, support and promote rigorous and respectful academic and policy debate in Canada and beyond.
Our commitment to excellence rests on four pillars, outlined below. Our efforts within these four domains will continuously evolve as we identify new issues and ideas to advance equity and our academic mission.
This statement serves to affirm the principles and values reflected in these pillars, and to share them with our colleagues, alumni, donors and the wider community. It complements, but does not supersede, official Carleton policies and collective agreements with academic and administrative staff.
While we are all responsible for upholding these values and principles in our work and professional conduct, we are mindful that individual actions may reflect and have an impact upon the broader NPSIA community. We recognize that efforts to resolve any differences or disagreements vis a vis our voluntary observance of these values and principles begin with mutual respect and a commitment to listen to and learn from each other.
