Committee Opportunity: Honor Committee

The Honor Committee is selected to promote academic integrity as a core value for our university community. Members of the committee also serve on hearing panels established to investigate and resolve alleged violations of the code.

Membership on the Honor Committee is limited to Mason faculty, staff, and students. Faculty members, administrative faculty members, and classified staff members who join the committee must have a minimum of a master’s degree from an accredited program. Faculty members cannot participate in resolving cases they have referred. Faculty members, administrative faculty members, and classified staff members who join the committee must successfully complete the training and orientation program.  

Honor Committee panels consist of three Honor Committee members. 

In cases where a graduate student has been referred, at least one member of the Honor Committee must be either a graduate student, a classified staff member, an administrative faculty member, or a faculty member.
