Beginning this fall, students charged with academic violations will have the option of taking their cases to the Student Conduct Board. This option will be in addition to the three traditional processes of faculty disposition, administrative disposition and hearing officer.
The Student Conduct Board offers the opportunity for students to be actively involved in promoting academic integrity and the new student Honor Code on our campus. Students will share with faculty the responsibility of changing our culture to one where academic integrity is not merely an aspiration but an embedded reality of what it means to be a Longhorn.
The university’s new Honor Code states: “As a student of The University of Texas at Austin, I shall abide by the core values of the university and uphold academic integrity.”
Students with a strong commitment to upholding the highest standards of academic integrity on our campus are encouraged to get involved. This prestigious opportunity is open to undergraduate and graduate students and the application deadline is September 6, 2013. Successful candidates will be appointed by President Powers to the Student Conduct Board.
