National SCPT Mission

To promote ethical thinking in the developing character and conscience of students.

National SCPT Vision

To be the largest network of ethical leaders on college campuses.

National Student Code of Ethics

  • Ethical Leadership
    Student members set the standard for ethical leadership, ethical conduct and model ethical behavior. Student members act ethically in every personal interaction.
  • Accountability
    Student members accept responsibility and accountability for their individual decisions, actions and attitudes. Student members engage in activities that enhance the credibility and value of the SCPT and themselves.
  • Integrity
    Student members think and act with honesty and integrity, and apply high standards of ethical behavior to their daily activities.
  • Trust
    Student members maintain a high level of trust with all others and build trust through fairness, honesty, accountability, integrity and transparency. Student members should not engage in behaviors or activities that create potential, apparent or actual conflicts for the SCPT, NASBA CPT or themselves.


The CPT launched its first StudentCPT chapter at Lipscomb University, in 2009. Today, there are 29 chapters in 17 states. More than 2,000 students have participated in StudentCPT activities over the past year. During the 2014-2015 school year, students hosted over 80 chapter meetings and nearly 20 different community service activities. There are thousands of organizations for college students. However, the NASBA Student Center for the Public Trust (StudentCPT) has a unique value proposition. If students invest their time and energy into enhancing their ethical decision-making skills now, they will get immeasurable returns throughout their careers.
