Code of Ethics
Fellowship Through Service.
The “Fellowship Through Service” phrase is the official motto of Rotaract representing the spirit, and enthusiasm of individuals who are bonded through Rotaract experiences.
Rotaract is committed to making a difference at the local grassroots level with members addressing their communities’ needs while promoting international understanding and peace through a framework of friendship and service.
Service Above Self
The “Service Above Self” phrase is of tremendous importance. It is the official motto of the Rotary Clubs of the world. The “Service Above Self” motto is an expression of Rotary/Rotaract dedication to serve their community and is the thread that runs throughout the Rotary world and unites like-minded people in thought and action, no matter in what part of the world they live.

Four Way Test
The Four-Way Test is a non-partisan and non-sectarian ethical guide for Rotaractors to use for their personal and professional relationships. The test has been translated into more than 100 languages, and Rotaractors recite it at club meetings:
Of the things we think, say or do:
Is it the TRUTH?
Is it FAIR to all concerned?
Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
O Lord who know our need
Help is fulfill our Rotary Creed
We live to serve you every day
In all we think, do or say.
Accept our prayers for this meal
Restore, Forgive, Inspire and Heal.
