Honor Board

Bryn Mawr College is an institution that takes pride not only in a legacy of excellence, but also in many grand traditions. The Honor Code is one such tradition that is woven into all aspects of life on campus at Bryn Mawr. It is a living document that the Undergraduate student community adopts, “to create an environment in which each member is able to realize their full potential- a potential which is realized through intellectual and social growth.” By adopting this document, the Undergraduate student community acknowledges that respect and concern for one another is key to our development, both socially and academically.

Meet the Honor Board:

The Honor Board consists of 8 students (3 Seniors, 2 Juniors, 2 Sophomores, and the Head of the Honor Board) elected each year by the Undergraduate student body. They act as representatives in academic hearings, social hearings, and Dean’s Panels, and deliberate and decide on the resolutions of cases in conjunction with the Dean of the Undergraduate College and Faculty members of the Honor Board. Their responsibilities also include educating the incoming class about life under the Honor Code at Bryn Mawr, distributing information about examination policies, distributing Finals week materials and schedules, and delivering hearing reports to the Assembly at the end of each semester as prescribed in the Honor Code.

Confidentiality is vital to the success of the Honor Code.  Knowledge of any social or academic conflicts is confined to as few people as possible (parties involved, members of the Honor Board and those who might have taken part in mediation processes). All witnesses and parties are required to keep all proceedings strictly confidential.
