Honor and Integrity System

Responsibilities of a Member of the Honor Council

As a member of the Council, you will be expected to perform several basic duties:

  • attend meetings--Honor Council meetings are held at beginning and end of each semester. Professional development meetings are held for new members in the fall and as new members are appointed.

  • respond quickly--(honor@ksu.edu) when an Honor & Integrity System staff person requests information, an indication of availability for case investigations or hearing panels, or a vote on Honor Council business.

  • serve as an educator--informing students and faculty about the K-State Honor & Integrity System and its mission and policies; promoting academic integrity on campus.

  • serve as a case investigator--conducting, with a fellow Honor Council member, investigations (gathering information) with reporter(s), witness(es), and alleged violator(s). 

  • serve as a hearing panel member--hearing all information and determining (along with four other Honor Council members and a non-voting Chair) whether a student is responsible or not responsible for an Honor Pledge violation, and if found responsible, a fair and educational sanction.
