Russ College Honor Code

Created by the Russ College Student and Faculty Academic Honesty Honor Councils with feedback and support from the rest of the Russ College, the Russ College honor code comprises the statement of student responsibilty and the statement of faculty responsibility, as well as the honor pledge:

"We members of the Russ College pledge to act with integrity and expect the same from each other."

The code was formally adopted in February 2008. A banner bearing the pledge and signatures of Russ College students, faculty, staff, and Dean Dennis Irwin hangs in Stocker Center 103 in celebration of the Russ College’s commitment to academic integrity.
