The Honor Code
No Lawrence student will unfairly advance their own academic performance or in any way limit or impede the academic pursuits of other students of the Lawrence community.
Students who matriculate at Lawrence sign the Honor Pledge during welcome week and then reaffirm the Honor Code on all submitted work by writing "I hereby reaffirm the Lawrence University Honor Code"--or "IHRTLUHC"--followed by a signature.
The Honor Code is a great privilege and responsibility. Faculty members trust that students will do honest academic work, and this trust creates an atmosphere in which students can work without constant surveillance. As such, the entire community is responsible for creating and maintaining the atmosphere of integrity that is so much a part of who we are here at Lawrence.
The Honor Council
The Honor Council is a group of Lawrence students that works on behalf of the entire Lawrence community to uphold the Honor Code and to encourage fair and honest academic work. The Council functions as an educational resource, informing students and faculty of the implications of the Honor Code and the situations that fall under the Council's jurisdiction. As the need arises, the Council also functions as a judicial body, convening hearings in response to alleged violations of the Honor Code.
Members of the Lawrence community should feel free to contact any member of the Honor Council. If they talk to a Council member about a possible Honor Code violation, they are under no obligation to pursue additional action.
