Get Involved with the Honor Council at Virginia Tech

Honor Council Delegates

Live out Ut Prosim through involvement with the Undergraduate Honor System. The Undergraduate Honor System is a student led system, designed to cultivate a culture of honor and integrity on campus. Becoming involved with the Undergraduate Honor System allows students to develop and utilize elite leadership skills such as time management, conflict management and public speaking. Students are also able to chair meetings and interact with administrators and faculty. These skills are highly sought-after in the job market.

Ways to Get Involved:

Hearing Panel Members partake in the Hokie tradition by serving on hearing panels throughout the semester. Panel members are involved in determining whether a student is responsible for a violation of the honor code and for recommending appropriate sanctions in cases where students are found responsible. Panel members are also expected to maintain complete confidentiality of all information and outcomes of Honor Code proceedings. Students who serve in this position are expected to serve 3-4 times per semester and are able to pick the hearing dates and times that their schedule permits. Hearing panel members will be required to attend a training that will occur early in the semester.
