Social worker will oversee ethics policies at UNC-Chapel Hill in wake of scandal

University of North Carolina Chapel Hill professor Kim Strom-Gottfried will oversee the campus ethics policy in the wake of a long-running academic and athletic scandal, according to this article in the Raleigh News & Observer.

Over 18 years 3,100 students, half of whom were athletes, took African and Afro-American studies courses that did not meet. Students were only required to write a paper that resulted in high grades. Several employees were fired after a report was released on the scandal.

Strom-Gottfried, who is a National Association of Social Workers member, holds a distinguished professorship in ethics and professional practice at UNC’s School of Social Work. In her new post she will advocate for resources for ethics and help coordinate and promote ethics programs on the campus.

Social workers follow the National Association Code of Ethics. Visit this website to learn more about the code.
