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

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.
