South Carolina Educational Opportunity Programs Week 1 Pee Dee Week Monday, August 29th – Friday, September 2nd
Carolinas Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (Code of Ethics) The purpose of an Ed-Op Program is to provide a chance for high school students, particularly juniors and seniors, to be exposed to many different educational opportunities and to explore specific interests. 1.
It is the responsibility of each college or university to inform any person (who represents that institution) of the CACRAO Code of Ethics which will be in effect at all CACRAO sponsored Educational Opportunity Programs. Each institutional representative must respect the rights of other institutions. ● One official representative is considered adequate at an Educational Opportunity Program. If more than one representative is needed, those present must confine all activities to the assigned space. ● Group presentations are not condoned in arena settings where a number of institutions share common quarters. Such presentations discourage students from exploring all of their options. ● The use of overly conspicuous exhibits as promotional devices are prohibited, i.e. (videos, large pictorial displays, balloons…) ● Distributed educational information must be limited to printed materials which are accurate and tasteful. Handouts such as key chains, balloons, pens, pennants, and foods are not acceptable. ● Applications for admissions may be distributed, but not completed at Educational Opportunity Programs. ● CACRAO members should display the highest levels of decorum and avoid any unprofessional behavior that would disgrace the CACRAO organization or that would infringe upon the rights of their fellow members.
School counselors are encouraged to limit program invitations to CACRAO members and other degree-granting institutions. In the event that counselors choose to invite other organizations; those participants must adhere to the Code of Ethics set forth by CACRAO.
CACRAO member institutions may host Educational Opportunity Programs only with prior approval from either the NC or SC Scheduling Committees. In the event that the Scheduling Committee feels it is necessary to hold a program at a member institution, the following policies will apply: ● The Host Institution will participate on an equal standing with all other institutions, to include alphabetical order and no special incentives for students. ● Refreshments (if provided) should be for college representative only.
Institutions consistently out of compliance with the attendance policies as outlined in the Ed-Op schedule will be reported to the Chairman of the Ethics Committee of CACRAO by using the formal or informal complaint form. This includes unprofessional behavior (i.e. not showing up, arriving late and/or not remaining for the entire program).
