Honor Code

At Knox, you're empowered to govern your own behavior and monitor your own academic integrity -- whether you're a first-year student or almost ready to graduate.


Having this privilege is central to your identity as a young academic and your intellectual life on campus. In fact, we haven't had a proctored test since the Honor Code was initiated in 1950 by Ismat Kittani '51, a student from Iraqi Kurdistan.

What do students have to say about the Honor Code? You'll find that they and our faculty share a sense of community, respect, and trust.

Learn more about the Honor Code; the Honor Board, which hears cases of academic dishonesty; the Honor Board Constitution; and our membership with the Center for Academic Integrity.
