The Honor Board is a student-led organization that coordinates hearings to determine whether students are responsible for infractions of the codes outlined in the Student Handbook. This includes honor code violations like cheating and plagiarism and code of conduct violations such as alcohol and drug use. Our conduct process allows students to tell their side of the story to a Board or Panel composed of employees and students who then make a decision about where the responsibility lies and any consequences that follow. As members of the Board, we are trained in active listening and open-questioning techniques to elicit as much information as possible from the student and others to make an informed decision about how we should proceed in a manner that best benefits the student and the institution.
