The rapid development of information technologies has led to a number of difficult to forecast potential abuses. A similar effect is taking place in the use of social media, leading to new forms of mobbing.
Also in view of lessons learnt from the present policy (in particular in terms of the process), the Board of Trustees (BOT) of ISU has unanimously decided to perform an overall revision of the harassment policy in place at ISU.
ISU’s Code of Conduct and Ethics (COCE) commits everyone in the ISU community to the highest ethical standards in furtherance of ISU’s mission of teaching, research, and service. The foundations of ethical behavior at ISU are a commitment to respecting the rights and dignity of all persons and a commitment to discharging our obligations to others in a fair and honest manner. Every member of ISU plays an important role in keeping these commitments by demonstrating integrity and respect in his or her daily activities and in the performance of their responsibilities.
The ISU COCE establishes a statement of principles to guide the activities of all ISU faculty, staff, and students, who are required to acknowledge and abide to it. The full text fo the COCE is available online as part of the Academic Handbook (see chapter V).
Climate change is a major challenge of this century that affects all humankind. Its consequences are becoming increasingly important in our daily lives and a threat to our well-being.
At ISU, as pioneers in space education for the future leaders in the international space community, we see teaching and research on space technologies that can help solve global problems and monitor climate change as a key component of the curriculum.
In addition, we thrive to be an example of environmentally friendly practices on a day-to-day basis, both at our Central Campus in Strasbourg and at other program locations.
