Proper Etiquette

When working as a consultant, it is important to remember that you are representing the WAC program at all times. Students will judge the competency of the program based not only on your competency, but on the attitudes and conduct you display. Therefore, it is imperative that you engage in professional behavior during all conferences. The following is a set of guidelines that should be followed in order to help ensure that you avoid unacceptable behavior when conducting a conference.

In addition to these guidelines, be sure to display a friendly and courteous attitude when working with students. Also, be sure to avoid possible
conflicts of interest that may arise due to the nature of the portfolio projects.
