VIII. REVISION OF THE UNDERGRADUATE HONOR CODE

If authorized by the Executive Vice President and Provost and the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Academic Affairs, the Director of the Office of Undergraduate Academic Integrity may recommend minor changes to the Honor Code Manual to the Commission on Undergraduate Studies and Policies, who shall be responsible for review and approval of these changes. The Director of the Office of Undergraduate Academic Integrity shall send a copy of all recommended changes to the Honor Council in a timely manner.

If the Commission on Undergraduate Studies and Policies agrees that the recommendations do not substantively change the Honor Code Manual and/or place the Manual in conflict with the University’s Undergraduate Honor Code Policy, the recommended changes may be incorporated into the Honor Code Manual. The Director of the Office of Undergraduate Academic Integrity shall inform all members of the Undergraduate Honor System of the changes in a timely manner.

Proposed revisions to the Honor Code Policy that substantively change this document shall originate from (a) the Honor Council or (b) a committee appointed by the Executive Vice President and Provost that includes representation from the Honor Council, faculty, students, and administration. Once approved by the Executive Vice President and Provost, the recommendations of the committee or Honor Council shall be forwarded to the Commission on Undergraduate Studies and Policies, University Council, the President, and the Board of Visitors. Any substantive changes in the proposed amendments as they proceed through the governance process shall be resubmitted to the originating body for approval.
