Paul, N.C. (2002, June 4). Honoring the Code. Christian Science Monitor.

The University of Virginia uses an honor system that mandates the expulsion of any student found guilty of lying, cheating or stealing. Supporters of the, which is one of the oldest in the country, argue that the system encourages honor and respect. However, many deem the code as harsh, unfair and in need of change. Calls for change come after a recent investigation, in which 120 students were accused of plagiarizing the same paper in the same course. In this article, Paul examines the honor system by interviewing University of Virginia students and staff.
