Honesty Committee

In accordance with the University’s Academic Code of Honor, each collegiate unit is charged with forming a committee to adjudicate suspected infractions against the Honor Code.

The Arts and Letters collegiate committee normally is composed of four College faculty members (including the chair of the committee) and 7-9 students who must be enrolled in the College of Arts and Letters. The committee chair facilitates all matters concerning the Honor Code and serves as a point-person for the college faculty who suspect an honesty infraction has occurred. The chair advises faculty regarding the process for using an Honor Code Violation Report and, if that is not possible, on the necessity of holding an Honesty Hearing. When a hearing is deemed necessary, the chair of the collegiate committee then appoints two faculty and three students from among the members of the collegiate committee to preside at the hearing and to submit a report on the outcome of that meeting.
