2 As an aspiring Industrial / Organizational Psychologist, I have now started the journey down the path of learning business psychology and efficiently implement those best practices in the field. Understanding ethics are critical to me as a Human Resource (HR) specialist because non-compliance with such concepts and regulations; e.g., the U.S. Forest Service Standards of Ethical Conduct could result in negative outcomes; litigation for the organization as well as my own professional ruin. The role of ethical and moral character is central to developing sound judgment and is vital to being competent and skilled in dealing with others, formulating cases, researching evidence -based studies and best practices (Sperry, 2007). The purpose of this essay is to evaluate how well my experience in professional ethics has prepared me to handle situations such as presented in Scenario number 2, those areas that need further development, and my current level of confidence. The scenario poses an ethical and moral dilemma, what does a professional do when they observe possible improper conduct on behalf of an associate? In this situation, a colleague’s office door is ajar when I enter the room to ask for advice concerning university procedures. I witnessed the professor in an inappropriate physical stance with a graduate student, who is a student her class and is also working on research with her.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
