The mission of the Association of Independent School Admission Professionals is to support and advance those involved in admission and enrollment management in their responsibilities for advancing institutional mission and financial sustainability. AISAP's 2010 Strategic Plan established as a goal the need to set guidelines for ethical behavior and best practices for the enrollment professional. This document was developed by a diverse group of AISAP member schools representing a cross section of the membership to serve as a resource and guideline for ethical behavior and best practices. These guidelines are offered in the spirit of advancing the profession, supporting our schools, and serving our students and families. Furthermore, these guidelines signify the commitment of AISAP to advance the professionalism of the admission field for all. While not intended to be regulatory in nature, the document was crafted with the highest standards of behavior and practice in mind and will suggest to all independent school leaders the importance of maintaining high standards of competence and integrity in the profession.
The document, Ethical Behavior & Best Practices for Admission Professionals, is not intended to replace NAIS Principles of Good Practice or other similar documents from consortium or other associations; rather it is meant to go hand in hand with them. Nor is this document intended to be regulatory, but rather one that provides a level of standards that admission and enrollment management professionals should consider as they seek to be the best in the industry.
