The Knox College Honor Code

Intellectual integrity is the underpinning for all educational, scholarly, and creative work at Knox College. The College community expects its members to demonstrate a high degree of ethical integrity in all their actions, including and especially academic work. At Knox each individual is held responsible for ensuring that his or her academic work meets the institutional standards of honesty.

The Knox College Honor System

The Honor System has been an integral part of the life of Knox College since 1951, when the student body initiated the introduction of a system of academic integrity. All students and all faculty at Knox College have an obligation to understand the Honor System and to follow its provisions. This text—distributed to all students and all faculty—provides a general description of the Honor System and also contains the Constitution of the Honor Board.
