Student Leadership Opportunities

Get Involved with the Honor Council at Virginia Tech

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. Through engagement with Honor Council Delegates, faculty, and students, Panel members are involved in determining whether a student is responsible for a violation of the honor code and for recommending sanctions in cases where students are found responsible. By becoming part of this group of dedicated students, you will be making a huge difference in the campus community and preserving the value of the VT degree. Students who serve in this position are expected to serve 3-4 times per semester.

Serving as a hearing panel member is a great way to become an Honor Council Delegate.

Hearing Panel Member Application

Honor Council Student Delegates are the first point of contact within the office. Delegates are responsible for working with students who have cases referred to the office, and chair hearing panels. This is a highly selective leadership opportunity.

Any student with an overall GPA of 2.0 or higher and who is in good academic and disciplinary standing can apply. It is highly encouraged that delegates serve as panel members first, as that serves as a valuable teaching tool on the honor system.

Recruitment for honor council delegates occurs in early Spring semester.
