MINUTES OF THE REGULAR FACULTY COUNCIL MEETING OF
January 28, 2013


VIII. NEW BUSINESS.

B. New Student Honor Code (D 10167-10171).

Chair Hilley announced that the current University Honor Code had been renamed the University Code of Conduct, pertaining to the University at large, while the students had created a new Student Honor Code. Mr. Clark, who served on the President’s task force to review this issue, said the reasons for the new Student Honor Code were to make it more concise, memorable, academic, and actionable than the previous one. He added that the previous code was “aspirational” in nature and could not be violated. Because the new code was perceived as having increased relevance for students, Mr. Clark said the task force thought it might become more pervasive in its influence and impact across campus.
