Goals and Major Activities
The Honor Commission is a student judicial organization that oversees the Honor System in the College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources. The Honor System is a method of student self-governing for those enrolled in courses in the college. Under the Honor System, students sign an honor pledge; the responsibility for proctoring examinations and quizzes lies with the individuals enrolled in the course. When a case of possible academic dishonesty is reported, the Honor Commission meets to review all pertinent evidence. If it determines that a violation occurred, the commission recommends disciplinary action.
The Honor Commission includes nine undergraduate students and one graduate student enrolled in the College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources. Members are selected annually as freshmen by the existing commission to serve for a three-year term beginning their second year. The graduate student is selected annually by the Commission.
How to Join
Freshmen enrolled in the College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources are invited to apply based on grade point average. Honor Commission members are selected through an interview process.
