The Rhodes Honor System

The Rhodes Honor System consists of the Honor Code, the Standards of Conduct for the Rhodes Community, and the Rhodes Commitment to Diversity. By participating in the Honor System, all who make up the Rhodes College community maintain the values by which we live together. At the beginning of each school year, all incoming students sign a pledge affirming their commitment to the following:

Honor Code
"As a member of the Rhodes community, I pledge I will not lie, cheat, or steal, and that I will report any such violation that I may witness."

Standards of Conduct for the Rhodes Community
"As a member of the Rhodes community, I pledge to respect my fellow students, faculty, staff and their property. I will treat others as I would be treated and their property as I would my own."
