Aven Satre-Meloy, Hackworth Fellow, Markkula Center for Applied Ethics, and Chief Justice, Associated Student Government, and members of the Student Honor Code Committee will update the SCU community February 7 on progress in drafting an academic honor code.  The meeting will take place at noon in the Weigand Center, Arts and Sciences Building.

Last spring a majority of SCU students expressed an interest in adopting an academic honor code. This fall a student survey on implementing an honor code received an overwhelming and positive response, and provided many insights for what kind of honor code could work at SCU. At this event, the students leading the effort to have SCU adopt an honor code will present to campus the state of the drafting process of a proposed new code, a new disciplinary procedure, and a new faculty reporting process.
