The TLU Honor Code is a statement defining academic integrity for all student and sets the expectations of the university faculty and students regarding high standards in academic work.
When our Student Government Association began drafting a new TLU Honor Code the senate decided it should cover more than just academic work and extend to how TLU students should approach the community as a whole.
After doing research on Honor Codes from around the nation, the group set forth in putting a first draft together. After receiving feedback from faculty and students, the team of SGA members (with the help of the TLU Marketing Department) put together a final draft reading:
