As a member of the student body of LaGrange College, I confirm my commitment to the ideals of civility, diversity, service, and excellence. Recognizing the significance of personal integrity in establishing these ideals within our community, I pledge that I will not lie, cheat, steal, nor tolerate these unethical behaviors in others.
The Honor Code and its policies and procedures apply to all full-time and part-time students enrolled in all of its undergraduate and graduate programs, and the Evening College. By matriculation, students acknowledge the Honor Code to be a policy of LaGrange College. The Honor Pledge, "I pledge that I have neither given nor received unauthorized help on this examination or assignment, nor have I witnessed any violation of the Honor Code," is implied whether or not it is written on academic work.
The Honor Code was written by a committee of students and faculty and implemented in 1999. It has as its goal creating a community of scholars based on trust and responsibility.
Comprised entirely of students, the Honor Council has served since its inception to foster academic integrity and to hear cases brought before it when a student may have violated the Honor Code. The Council is entrusted with this responsibility by the college community, and Council members strive to maintain the principles of fairness and respect.
