STUDENT HONOR COMMITTEE: REPORT TO THE ACADEMIC SENATE

Academic year 2008-2009 (Summer 2008 through Spring 2009)

 

 

Overview:

 

The Committee consists of 12 faculty members and 9 students (6 undergraduate; 3 graduate). Elected Faculty members: Mary Axford (Library), Hayriye Ayhan (ISYE), Tucker Balch (CoC-IC), Paul Foster (Mod Lang), Michael Gamble (Arch), James Gole (Physics), Blake Leland (LCC), Saby Mitra (MGT), Christine Ries (Econ), Carol Senf (LCC, Chair), Kathy Tomajko (Library), Tyler Walters (Library).

 

Statistics: During 2008-09, the committee followed the new Student Code of Conduct that was approved by the Senate on January 8, 2007.  The new code distinguishes 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.
