Work Ethics Program

Columbus Technical College instructs and evaluates students on work ethics in all programs of study. Ten work ethics traits are defined as essential for student success and are listed in the table below. The definitions for these traits have been integrated into the program standards of each program curriculum thereby allowing each program to make work ethics a relevant and meaningful part of the program curriculum. The traits are assessed before the student graduates from the program.

Work Ethic Traits

The evaluation of students’ work ethics is part of the teaching process. Evaluation is based on the identified set of ten work ethics traits that are continually evaluated by instructors in the assessment process. Instructors provide feedback to students with clear directions for remedial action. A separate work ethics grade for each course will appear on students’ transcripts.
