“I attest to the honesty of my academic work and affirm that it conforms to the standards of the Harvard College Honor Code.” -- Draft Harvard College honor code, as reported by the Harvard Crimson, January 30, 2014. "Jake N. Matthews ’16 later suggested that faculty members, like students, should be required to sign a statement indicating their commitment to the honor code."
“We really want everyone to be honest,” said Sietse K. Goffard ’15, a member of the Academic Integrity Committee and the Undergraduate Council vice president. “That’s the whole point...of an ‘honor code,’ for everyone to be very open and candid about what they think.” -- Harvard Crimson, January 28, 2014"As part of his professional work, [psychologist Fred Malmstrom] has surveyed almost 50 years of [Air Force Academy] graduates, asking them, among other things, how often they had broken the academy honor code vow not to 'lie, steal, or cheat, nor tolerate among us anyone who does.' The results of his surveys show a steady increase in proportion of cadets admitting to violating the code, from 28 percent in 1962 to 65 percent in 2010." -- Colorado Springs Gazette, January 10, 2014.
"The worst cheating scandal in nearly 20 years at the Air Force Academy has prompted the Air Force to suspend the cadet-run system of discipline for honor code violations pending a thorough review of the academy's strict honor system.
"The re-examination of the academy's honor code, in which cadets pledge neither to lie, cheat nor steal nor to tolerate those who do, stemmed from evidence of large-scale cheating on a senior-class physics test last spring. In June, 19 seniors were suspended for a year and the cadet-run Honor Boards, which investigate possible violations of the code, were suspended." -- New York Times, September 15, 1984.92 Air Force Officers Suspended for Cheating on their Missile Exam -- New York Times, January 31, 2014.
Should be an enlightening discussion on Tuesday.
