Your Role as a University Employee

As a representative of a highly respected educational institution, you have a significant role in public relations. In some instances, you will be the only contact that people will have with your department or Kansas State University. It's important that you serve the public, other KSU employees, and students with courtesy and responsiveness, that the information you provide is accurate, and that you demonstrate the highest standards of integrity and honesty. Every interaction with people--whether in person, on the phone, or by mail--is an opportunity to create a positive impression, provide effective service, and foster good public relations.

Your primary and most important responsibility is to do a good job on the tasks that you're assigned. Listen carefully to your supervisor's instructions and promptly carry them out to the best of your ability. Ask questions as necessary and offer constructive suggestions. Your supervisor is interested in your ideas and appreciative of your initiative and efforts to do a good job.

Doing your job well also requires that you maintain good health and mental alertness, use good judgement, be prompt and regular in attendance, cooperate with your co-workers, and abide by established policies. You are also expected to maintain high standards of personal conduct. The way you conduct yourself both on and off the job will reflect upon you and the University.
