Mobof Code awaireiiess iitcreased
By FRANCES SILVA
. DTH Staff Writer
It; is the' responsibility of the student: "To
.conduct all academic work within the letter and
spirit of the Honor Code which prohibits the
giving or receiving of unauthorized aid in all
academic processes. "
One of the responsibilities an incoming stu
dent must accept is to uphold the Honor Code
of the University of North Carolina at Chapel
Hill. But many students have no conception of
what the Honor Code entails. In an effort to
change this, many people on campus - student
and faculty alike have set out to increase
awareness of the system.
The Committee on Student Conduct has set
up a subcommittee to aid both students and
faculty in learning and knowing more about the
As a result of work by this committee, a sec
tion from the Honor Code is now listed in every
blue book, which many students are required to
use for examinations. White cards with both the
faculty and student responsibilities also are dis
tributed around campus.
I f a student breaks it and is reported by either
another student or by a faculty member, com
plaints about that student's conduct are usually
taken to the student attorney general's office.
"There are no specific guidelines that have to
be met for me to initiate a trial," said Attorney
General Mark Carpenter. "Because without ex
ception, even if a case (charge) is repeated, it is
different from every other."
Carpenter said between 50-60 cases are heard
A preliminary investigation is started with the
attorney general talking to the defendant, the
accusor and any witnesses. He then tries to iron
out the discrepancies in the case if there are any.
If he has enough evidence, Carpenter will initi
ate charges against the defendant by serving him
with a summons.
The case is then assigned to one of our assis
tant attorney generals who has a conference
with the defendant to make sure the defendant
understands his rights as stated in The Instru
ment of Student Judicial Governance.
A prosecuting attorney is assigned along with
a defense counsel from the 27-member attorney
general staff. Students may not, however, seek
out the services of another attorney from Stu
dent Legal Services or from another profes
If found guilty by the Undergraduate Honor
Court the student can appeal on the grounds of
insufficient evidence, severity of the sentence,
or because of a violation of basic rights, in
cluding discrimination based on race or sex. '
Honor System brie fin
ul to new students
By CHARLOTTE HOLMES
DTH Stan Writer
. During the next few weeks, all freshmen will
be formally introduced to the Honor Code, as
presentations to freshmen English classes con
tinue. New students are being briefed on the
Honor System by members of the Attorney
General's staff and the Honor Court as an alter
native to presenting the system to freshmen at
"We want to outline student responsibilities
to the system in a relaxed and personal way,"
said Robert Divine, chairman of the Honor
Court. "Presenting the Honor Code in the
classroom I hope will have more impact on stu
dents than would explaining it in the gym during
Divine said the major focus was to make sure
students were aware of the advantages gained by
following a "system of mutual trust," as well as
the penalties that can be incurred by violating
that trust. -
Junior transfers and freshmen who placed
out of the English requirement will be contacted
Peter Baughan, assistant vice chairman of the
Honor Court, said the purpose of the presenta
tions to freshmen was to "demystify the Honor
"We are trying to increase an awareness of
the system," said Baughan. "We hope it will re
duce the amount of tragic cases of people who
claim they don't know the rules."
Baughan told freshmen in a presentation last
week that ignorance of a violation would not
lessen the guilt. He explained the major rules of
the academic and campus codes with the aid of
hand-outs from the Co'de of Student Conduct
and the Instrument of Judicial Governance.
These student publications detail possible vio
lations, penalties and the judicial process in
"It's up to you alone to find out from your
teachers what plagiarism or any other practice
involves," Baughan told the class. "Upon en
rollment at this University you have tacit re
sponsibility to our Honor System to make it
"Besides," Baughan added, "the Honor
Code was written, recorded and is enforced by
students. So as a student, it's your responsibility
to abide by it."
Students' reactions to presentations have
been that of appreciation.
"I had no idea what.the Honor Code was all
about or any penalties involved," said freshman
"It does help to hear a detailed explanation
of each violation."
Freshman Heidi Gessner said she was particu
lary unaware of plagiarism rules.
"I didn't know much about plagiarism at
all," Gessner said. "I'm just glad he came to
day, early in the semester."
Freshman English teachers were given an op
tion of briefing students themselves or allowing
a staff member to do it. Last year, 90 of the 150
presentations were conducted by members of
the Honor Court or IherAttorneyGeiieral'C
staff. Tripp Johnston, an Honor Court mem
ber, is the 1981 co-ordinator of the freshman
Under the rules governing appellate proce
dure, the first level of appeals is to the Under
graduate Court. A student can then appeal to a
University Hearings Board, which is a five-
member court chaired by an administrator, two
faculty and two students.
The highest level Of appeal is to the Chan
: cellor. "Over a year certainly half a dozen
would appeal to the chancellor," said Frederic
W. Schroeder, acting judicial programs officer
and director of the department of student, life.
That department also has been involved with
the revisions to the instrument. All revisions
must be proposed by the Committee on Student
Conduct and must be approved by the chancel
lor, the faculty council and by the Campus
"We meet on a regular basis to discuss pro
blems or potential problems," said Thomas
Bowers, chairman of the Committee on Student
Conduct. "If we feel the instrument needs to be
Bowers' committee initiated the 1978 revision
which made suspension the normal sanction for
- academic cheating, unless there are unusual
mitigating circumstances. Another change that
was instituted in 'the last revision was the re
moval of what many students called the "rat
clause," which made a student liable for not
reporting another student who they saw
"Prior to that time students had a legal and a
moral obligation to turn in another student,"
Bowers said. "The instrument was changed so
' that students now have a moral obligation."
Two members of the Committee on Student
Conduct, E.W. Brooks, an associate professor
in the history department and George Lensing,
assistant chairman of the English Department
and assistant dean of honors, said they thought
'' the faculty must also uphold their moral obli
gation to the Honor Code.
Lensing said the faculty must take it upon
themselves to participate in the honor system
and resist the temptation to give a student an F,
or to handle the problem irr another way.
According to the faculty responsibilities, pri
vate action is inconsistent with faculty policy
and carmot .be substituted for reporting the in
cident to the attorney general, he said.
"Interested parties cannot be impartial
judges," Brooks said.
The committee has been refining and tuning
the instrument, added Brooks, though its re
visions and review of the original instrument
was a result of many years work by faculty and
Both members have participated in numerous
functions designed to increase awareness of the
honor system. Questionnaires were distributed to
get feedback from the students on how much
they knew about the system. Brooks gjves

"We can expect a student to take the system
only as seriously as it takes itself," Lensing said.

student self government .... The honor court
