The Honor Code and the Honor Council are used by Loyola to educate students about and to encourage the practice of academic and intellectual honesty. The Code and the Council serve to support the University’s presuppositions that “students who are truthful on all academic matters and who submit academic work that is the product of their own minds demonstrate respect for themselves and the community in which they study, as well as a commitment to Jesuit education."
Loyola also hopes to instill in all members of its extended family a sense of balance, perspective, and personal satisfaction in trying hard and doing their best. Indeed, Loyola expects all of its constituent members to embrace, abide by, and help to enforce personal and professional standards of ethics – which represents one of many reasons for including the teaching and learning of ethics in the University’s curricula.
The Honor Council is in the process of recruiting new members! View the PowerPoint we are using for our information sessions.
