According to its May, 1992 Constitution, the student Honor Council
is an elected student-based organization empowered to deal with
cases of student honor code violations-- cheating, lying, stealing.
The Honor Council consisted of seven student members, including
three seniors, two juniors, one sophomore, and one freshman. Officers
presiding were the President (elected by the student members)
and a secretary. Faculty advisors oversee the proceedings. Cases
concerning violations of the Honor Code could be brought to the
Council through the Dean of Students or the Principal. These records
were generated by the Honor Council and retained by and deposited
in the Archives by the Dean of Students, who was responsible for
overseeing enforcement of Council punishment decisions.
