After months of evaluation, the review of the student-led honor system is moving forward.
At Wednesday’s educational policy committee meeting, members discussed a report drafted by a subcommittee charged with reviewing the honor system and approved a resolution based on the report’s findings.
The presented report analyzed faculty responses to a survey issued in the spring of 2010 on faculty satisfaction with the honor system.
The survey results pointed to a variety of opinions about the system — both skeptical and supportive — prompting the need to look into the concerns.
The report of the survey results features 12 recommended improvements to the honor system for approval by the educational policy committee and the committee on student conduct.
The committee narrowed the 12 recommendations down into a resolution made up of four major suggestions for immediate action, which included:
Improved communication between honor system personnel and faculty.
Revival of the faculty honor system advisory committee.
Alternative funding for the honor system that would not come from the “activities” category of student fees.
