Committee Update 2020

The Department of Justice investigation into NACAC’s Code of Ethics and Professional Practices (CEPP) and the resulting consent decree led us to evaluate the CEPP and weigh the risks to the association for continuing to uphold this as a mandatory document enforced by NACAC and its affiliates.

In March, the NACAC Board of Directors decided that it would be in the best interest of the association to create a “best practices” document that maintained the values and ethical practices of the current CEPP but did not establish mandatory practices. The Board of Directors charged the NACAC AP Committee with creating the new best practices document.

In response, the committee drafted the new Guide to Ethical Practice in College Admission, which was delivered to the board for their approval at their June 2020 meeting. 

This draft was then reviewed and commented on by the Affiliate Presidents Council, other association leaders, and the entire membership before ultimately being presented to the assembly delegates for their approval.

Thanks to everyone involved for helping the association to navigate this important decision.
