Students administer the Honor System through a system of six Honor Councils.
Undergraduate Honor Council
The Undergraduate Honor Council is elected through a university-wide election each February. Our election is unique because the candidates are selected without the use of campaigning. The members have been elected by their peers based on their reputations as student and campus leaders as well as being honorable members of the William & Mary community.

Each governing body overseeing the councils determines the manner for selecting its members. Members are trained and advised by Community Values & Restorative Practices; however, the Councils are student-run--students determine whether sufficient evidence exists to conduct a hearing, and students determine violations and issue sanctions.
