Question about Ethics

  • As many already know, studying for the physics GRE and getting accepted into a graduate program is not the final hurdle in your physics career.
  • There are many issues current physics graduate students face such as studying for their qualifier, deciding upon a field of research, choosing an advisor, being an effective teaching assistant, trying to have a social life, navigating department politics, dealing with stress, utilizing financial aid, etc.

Question about Ethics

Post by curiosity » Tue Mar 10, 2015 10:09 pm

Hi guys!
Thanks for opening and running such helpful platform for physics students.
I am an international graduate student at a public school.
As most of the graduate students am a teaching assistant.
For quite sometime my mind is occupied with some ethical questions.
By the department we are provided with office supplies, printers/copy machines and etc.
It is obvious that we can use those things in the course of fulfilling our teaching or research duties.
However, I am wondering is it ethical to use those thing for our academic purposes such as printing lecture notes, using paper sheets for doing our homeworks etc.
Please feel free to share you thoughts
