Honor, Ethics, and Integrity
Honor System
"Honor" at the University is far more than a word or a student organization. Each student is charged with the responsibility to refrain from dishonorable conduct. Accompanying this individual commitment to abide by the Honor System is an even more demanding commitment:a responsibility to ask those who violate our standard of honor to leave the University. Accepting these responsibilities is vital to the successful maintenance of the student-run Honor System. Honor System Site

One of the enduring characteristics of the University of Virginia is its commitment to integrity and high ethical standards. Long known for the Honor System, which has governed student conduct for more than a century and a half, the University has established complementary programs that underscore its historical emphasis on responsible and ethical behavior. These programs are working together to integrate ethics, honor, and integrity into all aspects of University life.
