Abstract: Starting from the significance of the notion of “ethics†, which has been consecrated since antiquity, we will present in this article some aspects developed in the current legislation on rules of ethics and deontology in the Romanian contemporary academic environment. The law on national education contains detailed provisions on university ethics and enshrines the obligation to adopt the Code of University Ethics and Deontology. An example in this respect is the Code of University Ethics and Deontology of the “Athenaeum†University in Bucharest, which provides a set of acknowledged values ​​and principles that underlie the rules of academic conduct. At the level of higher education institutions, Ethics and Deontology Committees are established, which draw up Annual Ethics Reports, but no centralized analysis of cases and causes of violation of university ethics has not been identified at national level to mitigate the negative impact on the quality of the educational act. In the application of the provisions of the National Anti-Corruption Strategy, 2016 - 2020, university and postgraduate training programs on ethics and integrity were set up, with an optional and mandatory character, but we cannot yet speak of a centralized comparative evaluation of the results of these programs. Current approaches to the development of academic ethics promoted by academic community members should be seen as good practices that require support and sustained efforts, including from civil society, to effectively contribute to the general public welfare.
