YOBA, Carlos Pedro Cláver. Professional deontology and ethics of the university teacher. Constr. psicopedag. [online]. 2010, vol.18, n.16, pp. 34-44. ISSN 1415-6954.

This article is aimed at reflecting and discussing university teacher’s deontology and ethics as well as the role of university in the Angolan reality. The university is established as a privileged environment for opposing ideas, sharing of knowledge and experiences, interacting and contradictions, seeking solutions to a variety of social problems. In this context, university teachers’ mission is to provide students with scientific knowledge, cultural values and experiences. It is also part of their mission to act in accordance with ethical and deontological rules and principles both in their professional and private lives. The university teacher has the arduous task of educating people in order to engender common identification between the university and people’s culture. Thus, for the construction of a responsible and trustworthy university, the violation of professional secrecy and the mere struggle to obtain a diploma are trends with which one and all participating in a university context should responsibly disagree. Only the freedom to think and act will make university accomplish its mission in society.
