How SLU Core Values are connected to the Ethical Codes
There is a connection between SLU core values and ethical codes. One of the instances in which they are related is that both require one to show respect for others. The SLU core values require that one should value the unique talents of other individuals and respect their dignity (Saint Leo University, n.d). Similarly, ethical standards require that one should respect the beliefs and cultures of other individuals and groups (NOHS, 2015). In the second instance, the connection can be seen in the requirement for assisting ones community. The SLU core values require that one should be a responsible steward, who is resourceful, optimizes and applies resources with the intent of fulfilling community needs and goals (Saint Leo University, n.d). Similarly, the ethical standards require that an individual should use available mechanisms to assist, plan and advocate for addressing community and societal level needs (NOHS, 2015).
How a Practitioner can demonstrate respect for Professional Ethical Boundaries
A human services agent can demonstrate consideration for ethical boundaries using SLU and the Ethical Standards for Human Service Professionals. For instance, when engaging with a client, a practitioner will obtain informed consent from the individual so that the service can be delivered. The client will be told that they can at any point cancel the consent they provided initially and the practitioner respects the clients decision. Secondly, a human services agent can demonstrate consideration for ethical boundaries by observing a persons need for discretion and secrecy. The respect for confidentiality and privacy will be observed except when it may put the client’s safety art risk (NOHS, 2015).
Ethical Statement: The organization will treat all its stakeholders including clients, employees, employers and the society with dignity, courtesy, and respect.

How the SLU core values are connected to the NOHS ethical standards
The Saint Leo University core values are connected to that of NOHS ethical standards. It guides how individuals should conduct themselves and outlines the individuals responsibility to others and themselves. Saint Leo models the fundamental values of the human services profession and includes respecting the dignity and welfare of all people; promoting self-determination; honoring cultural diversity; advocating for social justice; and acting with integrity, honesty, genuineness, and objectivity (National Organization for Human Services, 2015, para. 2). Saint Leo uses its core values to promote and encourage human service values by creating a community of like-minded individuals with integrity and ethics. This is accomplished by modifying individual beliefs through repetition and application of the core values in coursework. According to Naagarazan (2006), modifying beliefs through repetition and positive affirmation can modify or create new beliefs about a persons identity and/or what is important to him (values) (p. 3).
How a practitioner can demonstrate respect for professional ethical boundaries
A practitioner can demonstrate respect for professional ethical boundaries by learning the standards, requirements, and procedures for human services professionals and the organization they belong to. Policies and procedures are embedded with an organizations values and carry normative assumptions that influence ethical reasoning and behavior, impacting how decisions are rationalized and what behaviors are deemed appropriate and fitting in a particular setting (Nielsen & Lockwood, 2018, p. 45). This will enable the professional to interact ethically with colleagues, to effectively coordinate with other departments, to interact cordially with suppliers as well as the customers, and to maintain all these friendly interactions (Naagarazan, 2006, p. 7).
We respect our community’s diversity and uphold our core values in our mission and promote them in our work by acting with integrity, honesty, genuineness, and objectivity.

SLU CV connection to ESHS
SLUs mission statement clearly indicates its perspective with regard to education for people of all faiths, through creation of student centered environment noting the importance of learning as a prime factor. The core values that SLU adopted include excellence, community, respect, personal development, responsible stewardship and integrity with each core value representing the manner in which SLU operates. The following are examples of SLU connections to the relationship framework outlined in the Ethical Standards of Human Services Professionals:
I find SLU core value Community – connection to ESHS Responsibility to the Public & Society is reflected in STANDARD 10 Human service professionals provide services without discrimination or preference in regards to age, ethnicity, culture, race, ability, gender, language preference, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, nationality, or other historically oppressed groups. Clearly identified, these values and standards are demonstrated in student acceptance to admissions to a variety of degreed programs without regard to their individual differences or preferences. Excellence is implemented through its educational enterprise employing individuals who committed to its mission, providing students with tools necessary to gaining essential knowledge. I find this is reflective of STANDARDs 36/37 Human service professionals hold a commitment to lifelong learning and continually advance their knowledge and skills to serve clients more effectively; (37) Human service educators develop and implement culturally sensitive knowledge, awareness, and teaching methodologies. Being attentive to these are manners in which excellence is promoted, not only to staff’s self awareness but in the ability to continue to promote excellence amongst student success through exchange in academic instructions, leadership and guidance by professors.
I find SLU CV Respect in relationship to ESHS directly connected to the Preamble’s fundamental values of the human services profession include respecting the dignity and welfare of all people; promoting self-determination; honoring cultural diversity; advocating for social justice; and acting with integrity, honesty, genuineness and objectivity. I’ve found this in the onset of learning through mere genuine welcoming from professors via online introductions, interactions and expressing accessibility.
How a Practitioner
SLU CV Personal Development – STANDARD 35 Human service professionals strive to develop and maintain healthy personal growth to ensure that they are capable of giving optimal services to clients. SLU employment of individuals bolstering highest academic achievements definitely attests to personal development values.
CV – Responsible Stewardship STANDARD 37 Human service educators develop and implement culturally sensitive knowledge, awareness, and teaching methodologies. STANDARD 26 Human service professionals seek the training, experience, education and supervision necessary to ensure their effectiveness in working with culturally diverse individuals based on age, ethnicity, culture, race, ability, gender, language preference, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, nationality, or other historically oppressive groups. In addition, they will strive to increase their competence in methods which are known to be the best fit for the population(s) with whom they work. Being aligned, knowledgeable and competent addresses the obligation to provision and taking actions to foster the responsibility of stewardship towards SLU’s mission.
SLU CV- Integrity- Directly stated and found in ESHS Preamble, the fundamental values of the human services profession include respecting the dignity and welfare of all people; promoting self-determination; honoring cultural diversity; advocating for social justice; and acting with integrity, honesty, genuineness and objectivity. This value is reflected in SLU’s mission through offering on campus and worldwide learning where availability to learning expands beyond the physicality of on campus.
Practitioner Demonstrate Respect for Professional/Ethical Boundaries
ESHS fundamentals values include respecting dignity and welfare of all while honoring diversity. Respecting the professional relationship without crossing personal boundaries also denotes respect and ethical boundaries. Another facet would be to not impose personal biases upon clients. Client confidentiality as well as respect for clients time (2015). A practitioner can demonstrate respect for professional and ethical boundaries merely by adherence to the outlined core values and mission statement set forth and clearly stated in the SLU CV and its Mission Statement. Also by having a clearly defined set of values, principles and morals in regard to personal standards to live by, which should closely align with the SLU CV and MS.
