The Discussion

Students, faculty and staff are all considered "stewards" of the community of trust. The Honor Code presumes that our community is trustworthy; thus, it is necessary to confront behavior before one reports a matter for review by the Council. Our process begins with a personal discussion whereby the person observing the conduct asks for an explanation. Only if the explanation proves inadequate to negate the inference of a possible violation, should an official report be filed.

If you are Respondent, you must report to the Honor Council within 24 hours or resign from the College following notice from the Reporting Party that he/she will be reporting the matter. If you are a Reporting Party, you may initiate contact with the Council by filling out the online turn-in form.
