The code lays out formal expectations for academic integrity and creates a new student-faculty/administrator judicial board to hear cases regarding the violation of those expectations.
Those charged with implementing the honor code may encounter hurdles created by a restructured disciplinary system and a community that may be apathetic to the policy’s purpose.

The ad hoc group is working to identify possible points during the undergraduate experience to start conversations about academic integrity.
