Students not only developed the Honor Code, they also enforce it! The Honor Board consists of nine students -- three seniors, three juniors, and three sophomores -- as well as three faculty members.

You'll find that students and faculty are committed to a community where trust and honesty are regarded with the utmost seriousness. Unfortunately, however, violations such as plagiarism and cheating have occurred and are taken before the Honor Board.

The Honor Board's responsibilities include:

  • Investigating all formal reports of the suspected violation
  • Determining guilt or innocence of the person(s) involved
  • Specifying a punishment ranging from a failing grade to dismissal from the College

Honor Board Members

The board consists of 13 members -- five seniors, four juniors, and four sophomores. Each spring, the Honor Board Selection Committee appoints three first-year students to replace the outgoing senior members. In addition, the Faculty Executive Committee, in consultation with the Honor Board, appoints one faculty to replace the outgoing member. All appointments last for three years. Current board members include:

  • Nabila Dadar, senior member, co-chair
  • Uduak-Obong Ekanem, senior member, co-chair
  • Joy Kannookaden, senior member
  • Bonne Matheson, senior member, co-secretary
  • Dakota Stipp, senior member
  • Karen Caballero, junior member
  • Samantha Duffy, junior member, co-secretary
  • Jackson Faulkner, junior member
  • Nicholas Nurre, junior member
  • Phoung (Pam) Dang, sophomore member
  • Melissa London, sophomore member
  • Jessily Joseph, sophomore member
  • Adeline Gomez, sophomore member
  • Gregory Gilbert, faculty member
  • Karen Kampwirth, faculty member
  • Daniel Wack, faculty member

Honor Board Eligibility

If you're in good academic standing and have had no prior Honor Board convictions, you may apply for a board position for your class (determined by graduation date). The Honor Board Selection Committee then reviews all applications, invites each candidate to interview for the open positions, and makes its final selections. The committee also designates which selected students will be future co-chairs.

Honor Board Education Committee

Members of the Honor Board also form the Honor Board Education Committee. The primary responsibility of the committee is to work with the appropriate administrative officers, faculty members, and student organizations to increase community awareness of the Honor Code's purpose, policies, and procedures.
