Mission: The Colorado College Honor System was established in 1948 to promote personal responsibility and academic integrity. Founded upon the value of mutual trust between students and professors, it is an essential tradition of the college. The Honor Code applies to all assignments completed for credit, and any potential code violation is the concern of the Honor Council. The Honor Council is the student-run organization that maintains and enforces the Honor Code through educating the campus community and administering Honor System procedures.

Mission: Before beginning the first year at Colorado College, students are matched with a pre-major faculty academic advisor. Students are encouraged to discuss with their advisors course choices that will complement the intellectual paths they would like to explore at CC while completing all-College requirements. They may also consult with their pre-major advisors about research and internship opportunities beyond the classroom. As students declare their majors, they identify an advisor in the department of the major. Major advisors work with students to choose courses in the major. They help their advisees identify discipline-specific research and internship opportunities. Major advisors also work with their advisees to identify a faculty member who can guide them in their research for the senior thesis or capstone project.
