Students have access to a wide range of resources to help them avoid Honor Code violations and to report suspected violations.

Additionally, graduate students can volunteer to serve as panelists, investigators, facilitators, or the chief justice of the Honor System.

Two excellent sources to help students avoid plagiarism in their writing are provided here:

  • Avoiding plagiarism, self-plagiarism, and other questionable writing practices: A guide to ethical writing, prepared by Dr. Donald McKeon
  • Avoiding Plagiarism: A guide for students at Virginia Tech

The Graduate Honor System Constitution's Appendix also offers examples of plagiarism and suggestions for avoiding it.

For discussions about ethics, visit the Ethics Commons blog. Also visit Dean Karen P. DePauw's blog, Transforming Graduate Education.

Graduate students also can visit the Graduate Student Ombudsperson.

Students accused of Honor Code violations have several rights and responsibilities, which can be found here.
