A: APU students, like students in a non- faith based university, are held to the same standards and are expected to abide by the NASW Code of Ethics. Students should be using appropriate boundaries in classroom and field settings. If a student does try to evangelize to a client, this is an important boundary issue to be discussed in supervision.
