James Madison University Honor Code

III. Reporting of Possible Violations

  1. For the Honor System to be truly effective, all students and faculty members or staff members are expected to cooperate in its implementation. If students accept dishonesty by their peers, or if faculty/staff members accept dishonesty by their students, the entire Honor System will be destroyed. True honor can be achieved only if all guard it zealously.

  2. Any member of the university community who has reason to believe that an Honor Code violation has taken place should immediately report the circumstances to the faculty or staff member of the course involved; however, if the potential violation does not relate primarily to a specific course, the matter should be immediately reported to the Honor Council coordinator for disposition under Section V, Investigations and Charges by Honor Council.
