STUDENT HONOR COMMITTEE: REPORT TO THE ACADEMIC SENATE

Academic year 2007-2008 (Summer 2007 through Spring 2008)

 

 

Overview:

 

The Committee consists of 12 faculty members and 9 students (6 undergraduate; 3 graduate).  Elected Faculty members: H. Ayhan (ISYE), M. Axford (Library), T. Balch (CC), V. Birchfield (INTA), J. Gole (Physics), B. Leland (LCC), J. Michaels (ECE). S. Mitra (Mgt), G. Persons (PubPol), S. Ruffin (AE), C. Senf (Chair, LCC), K. Tomajko (Library).

 

Statistics:

 

On January 8, 2007 OSI implemented a new Student Code of Conduct that was approved by the Senate.  The primary change is the use of a distinction between high- and low-level cases, with all low-level cases subject only to administrative resolution.  Students accused in high-level cases may choose an administrative resolution or a hearing before the Honor Committee. In addition, low-level appeal cases go to the Dean of Students and high-level cases go to the Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs.
