2023-2024 Honor Council

Vanderbilt Honor Code

Vanderbilt University students pursue all academic endeavors with integrity. They conduct themselves honorably, professionally and respectfully in all realms of their studies in order to promote and secure an atmosphere of dignity and trust. The keystone of our honor system is self-regulation, which requires cooperation and support from each member of the University community.

2023-2024 Self-nomination

The Honor Council solicits members through a self-nomination process. 

All members of the Honor Council serve a term of one (1) calendar year beginning September and ending in August. Honor Council members must be students in good academic standing as defined in the VUSN Student Handbook and may be called for duty at any time during their term.

In the event of a membership less than nine (9), another call for self-nominations will be made.
