Honor and Integrity System Basics
The Honor & Integrity System operates with the belief that college students are still developing in integrity--the ability to make wise choices in dilemmas. Students who are reported and found in violation are given educational sanctions in hopes of helping those students become better citizens in their professions.
A vital component to the Honor & Integrity System is the inclusion of the Honor Pledge which applies to ALL assignments, examinations, or other course work undertaken by undergraduate and graduate students.
The current Honor & Integrity System and its procedures evolved from a task force established by Provost James Coffman in late Fall, 1994. The Provost's Task Force for Academic Honesty's primary mission was to develop draft policies for consideration by the greater academic community at K-State.
We, the undergraduate and graduate students and faculty of Kansas State University, in order to conduct our academic endeavors under high standards of individual responsibility, thereby promoting personal honor and integrity, set forth this constitution of the Honor & Integrity System.

Since the implementation of the Honor & Integrity System in 1999, Honor & Integrity System staff have emphasized a student development perspective in adjudicating those found in violation of the Honor Pledge.
