The Honor Council promotes a culture of integrity on campus by encouraging the practice of academic integrity and partnering with students, faculty and staff to facilitate adherence to College of LSA academic integrity policies. The goal of Honor Council is to bring together students, faculty members, and administrators to educate the College of LS&A on the importance of honorable behavior in the conduct of scholarship. The Honor Council also evaluates College and departmental academic integrity policies and practices and provides recommendations for their improvement. Honor Council Representatives also sit in on academic misconduct hearings with the Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Education and Executive Director of the Newnan LSA Academic Advising Center to give the student perspective on the process and help decide whether the student is responsible and if so, what action should be taken. While its main focus is "academic" integrity, Honor Council strives to instill principles of integrity beyond the classroom and into all aspects of the LS&A undergraduate experience.
