The Honor Council is comprised of one faculty member from each of the four academic divisions and a body of student representatives elected by their peers. The Council was created to:
- Oversee the continued development of the Honor Code to meet new moral and ethical challenges.
- Promote honor and integrity campus-wide.
- Provide members to serve on both hearing and appeals boards in cases where the code has been violated.
The Young Harris College Honor Code is an essential way to reach the college's goals of academic excellence, personal growth for each student and a community life based on high moral standards, trust and mutual respect.
