Code of Ethics

In 2021, UMIACS voted to adopt the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct as its own. The Code is designed to inspire and guide the ethical conduct of all computing professionals, including current and aspiring practitioners, instructors, students, influencers, and anyone who uses computing technology in an impactful way. Additionally, the Code serves as a basis for remediation when violations occur. It includes principles formulated as statements of responsibility, based on the understanding that the public good is always the primary consideration.
