SAIT is committed to its FIRST principles and adhering to its Code of Ethics in all it does.

These principles apply to members of SAIT's community include our Board of Governors, senior management, employees, contractors, consultants, agents, and volunteers. Commitment to our principles will produce a positive workplace that will reflect our values and take us into the future with continued success.
