By Robert Baker in Opinions | January 17, 2013

“Our school does not have a real honor system. So why have it at all?” Bryan Grover ‘14 asked this arresting question in a column from the Oct. 18 issue of the Concordiensis. As chair of the committee that initiated Union’s honor code let me express my appreciation to Mr. Grover for raising this question, and also for voicing his objection to writing the honor code statement (“I affirm that I have carried out my academic endeavors with full academic honesty”) on exams. Grover remarks, “This statement is supposed to be a new step toward ensuring that my peers and I don’t cheat…I wonder how many cheating students actually think twice about it due to this statement?”
