Dickinson Adopts Honor System

Fri., May 14, 1915

Dickinson College adopted an honor system for the student body in regard to academic work. Any assistance either given or received on any examination or written exercise of the college was forbidden, and could result in a suspension or expulsion, if found guilty by an annually elected Investigating Committee. The purpose of the system was to promote honesty and good order without the need for faculty supervision.
