Honor Codes

Tuesday, Mar. 5, 2013

Gary Pavela, director of academic integrity at Syracuse University, speaks March 8 at noon in the Weigand Center, Santa Clara University, on honor codes.  

Since last year, SCU students have been engaged in a dialog, which they hope will result in the adoption of a code at Santa Clara.  Ethics Center Hackworth Fellow Aven Satre-Meloy has spearheaded the effort this year.  

Pavela will be speaking about how SCU can adopt an honor code; what kind of code may make the most sense to adopt; and how to address such concerns related to honor codes like the academic freedom of faculty; faculty worries about time spent involved in cumbersome disciplinary procedures; and faculty worries over reporting requirements.
