Bylaws of the Honor Council
Guidelines and Procedures
Foundation of the Honor System
The Honor System is the Constitution and these bylaws. The Honor Code amounts to the Introduction, General Guidelines, Article I and Article III §2e of the Constitution of the Honor System. The purpose of the Honor System is to foster students’ maturity and academic responsibility through the atmosphere of mutual trust. The result of this atmosphere is the creation of a personal ethical code that will be maintained and strengthened long after graduation from the Colorado College.
It is the duty of the Honor Council to assure that the Honor System is maintained and enforced. Their responsibilities include: educating the campus community about he Honor System, investigating and trying possible Honor Code violations, and conducting fair hearings to determine an appropriate penalty. The Honor Council’s primary objective to assure that that atmosphere of mutual trust purposed by the Honor System is maintained and expanded upon.
