Values of Academic Autonomy and Integrity

Mirela Arsith, Daniela Aurelia Popa Tanase


The hypothesis from which we start in our approach is that in order to take the most appropriate decisions in university governance, certain principles should be applied, meant to ensure quality and performance in higher education. Thus, the principle of autonomy and the principle of integrity underlies, in academic area, quality of didactic and research activities, performance evaluation activities, efficient management, etc. At present, it is increasingly necessary to consolidate a culture of academic integrity. Between society and the academic community there are certain expectations that imply the internalization of a set of values and values, the ethical principle that any higher education institution must promote. Another fundamental principle represents academic freedom, such as freedom to research, freedom to teach and freedom of free speech about the education system or any of its institutions. We argue in favor of our ideas using the official documents of Danubius University: the Charter and the Code of Ethics and Professional Deontology.
