Professional Standards and Ethics

The Professional Standards and Ethics Committee:

  • Provides ongoing counsel to the Council and President as needed, making recommendations for policy when required.
  • Issues position papers addressing sections of the AASLH Ethics Statement or related issues. The Committee will act as content and copy editor, and appoint subcommittee members or a volunteer author as appropriate for the task. Such volunteers may or may not be members of the Standing Committee.
  • Review and, if necessary, make recommendations to the AASLH Council to revise the AASLH Professional Ethics Statement.
  • Staff consult the committee when AASLH considers professional expectations or standards within the field.
  • This committee also works with AASLH’s StEPs program; the only national standards program for history organizations.
