CPUT Ethics Framework

We live in a world in which self-enrichment, selfishness, greed, corruption and a culture of not caring for the lives of others and the environment are common. It has led to a culture in South Africa, Africa and the globe in which unethical behaviour has become the norm. For this specific reason, CPUT has decided to make it clear to all its stakeholders that CPUT will be known as an institution with high ethical standards, and one that has NO tolerance for any form of unethical behaviour or corruption.

As an institution of higher learning, we want to be recognised as a trendsetting university when it comes to ethics and sound governance practices. Subsequently, we aspire to be a University evidenced by a “clean administration.” We want furthermore to be known as a University that expects all stakeholders, be it staff, students, Council Members, Union Members, Senate, Convocation, the Institutional Forum or Service Providers of CPUT, the boards of our spin off companies, the Supply Chain Management Committee responsible for procurement, to act ethically and in line with the principles of this Framework.
