It is noteworthy that stakeholder ethics are sometimes overlooked in the discussions of the various issues surrounding college campuses. Very often, the focus on campus issues is not centered on issues that matter most to the students and their families, but instead on concerns that are of most concern to those who oversee college campuses: administrators, faculty, and administrators’ staff. In light of this, it is clear that stakeholder ethics must be part of the educational culture on the campus.
Students and their families are involved in their university education from the moment they first arrive on campus. They attend classes; they participate in campus events; they have their own projects; they are active in a wide range of activities; and they make a difference in the life of the university by working for the benefit of the university community.
Students and their families are also deeply involved in the debates that take place on the campus. Student affairs are conducted in ways that reflect the interests of the students, not the interests of administrators, faculty, and administrators’ staff.
At many schools, student associations and clubs serve as the primary vehicles for sharing information and ideas among members and those students who are involved in campus events. Students have a large role in shaping campus policies, but such discussions happen at the discretion of the student and his or her associations or clubs.
Students have a significant voice in the teaching and learning process, but their voice is seldom heard because of concerns about creating a “campus climate” in which administrators can get away with mistreating students. College students and their families do not have a voice when the topic of student conduct comes up.
For the most part, students are an active part of campus affairs, but those students who are most active are those who are considered to be disruptive. As a result, these students are not allowed to participate actively in campus events.
As a result, many students are unable to participate in campus life and are denied a meaningful educational experience. This situation does not serve the educational needs of the students and their families.
Communication with students is affected by the issues of communication that arise between faculty, administrators, and administrators’ staff. It has been found that these issues may contribute to barriers in the path of effective communication that in turn may impede the growth of the students and their families.
In terms of issues concerning the growth of students and their families, it has been found that many students who engage in certain activities or show concern about the issues of student misconduct issues are barred from participating in the events and projects that they are most interested in. There is also an issue of the quality of teaching that students receive on campus.
Students on the campus receive inadequate instruction in areas where they need more in-depth knowledge. Such areas are the ones where students need to be taught how to communicate in a specific manner that will give them a skill set that will help them be successful in the world as well as in the classroom.
It is important for students to understand that participation in learning activities or events is not limited to those activities that directly affect the student’s goals and objectives. It is important that students and their families are engaged in projects that will assist them in discovering the benefits that can be derived from the college experience.
