Strategic Statement: What are your convictions?

Sample Response: I am in-part defined by the quality of my work. This includes the integrity of that work. I was once asked to bend the rules in an effort to make our program larger (and, in the eyes of the individual who was making the request, better).

Bending the rules would have made more students eligible to receive services through our program, but these were not the students that the services were developed for. Not only did I refuse the request, but I made certain that the individual’s supervisor was aware that the request had been made.
