On November 1, the Honor Committee released a summary of its activity during the preceding month.
In October, the Committee received two conscientious retractions. There was one trial, in which an undergraduate was found guilty of plagiarism after being reported by a professor. In addition, there are seven ongoing investigations. The committee also granted one student’s claim of a contributory mental disorder.
Last month also saw the introduction of new digital recording and conferencing equipment, which replaces an older tape-based system. The new system will decrease the burden on witnesses by allowing them to be involved via teleconference.
Finally, Vice Chair for Education Allie Moore reports that the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life have approved the Honor Committee to develop an Honor “FOA”, an educational program targeted at members of the Greek community.
