Overview:
Civility is a common topic of discussion on college campuses. From faculty gathering to discuss discourteous emails from students to housing staff bemoaning the frequency and severity of roommate conflicts, many question how to teach the present generation about civil behavior on campus. Perhaps it is this discussion that has created a renewed interest in honor codes. These codes are not new. In America, the first honor code was written in 1779 at The College of William & Mary at the request of Virginia's then-Governor Thomas Jefferson.

Today, honor codes take many forms. Some are aspirational in nature, while others are policed and enforced by elected honor boards. Whatever model is chosen, honor codes must be developed in a way that highlights the authentic values of the institution. They must also have the buy-in from a number of key constituencies. This webinar will review several experiences and lessons learned from the development of “The SFA Way,” a student-initiated honor code that was created two years ago. In a short time, the program has become deeply ingrained in the culture of Stephen F. Austin State University. Participants will also discuss the selection of a model for an honor code, suggestions for developing the values, drafting the code, achieving stakeholder buy-in, and the importance of marketing the code to the campus community.

Objectives:
  • Discuss the issue of civility on college campuses
  • Review the three primary models of honor codes
  • Learn about four approaches to developing the values on which the honor code is based
