Theological ethics can demonstrate integrity in research development
2008-05-29

Prof. Laetus O.K. Lategan (pictured) recently delivered his inaugural lecture as Professor Extraordinary at the University of the Free State (UFS) in Bloemfontein. His subject was "The truth falters on campus: The contribution of the Theological ethics to the search for a professional ethic in research" where he emphasized the role of theological ethics in research development. He stressed the fact that the demonstration of a university's commitment to professional ethical behaviour in research can be via a code of ethics in which the university pronounces its standards for research. He said it is important to create an environment in which a professional ethic is not regarded as a personal achievement but rather as a life orientation. Prof. Lategan is currently the Dean of Research and Development at the Central University of Technology (CUT) where he takes managerial responsibility for research development.
