Join the LSA Student Honor Council

LSA Student Honor Council is a student  organization that works to promote integrity within the academic community. We educate faculty, GSIs, and students about ethics in the academic community. This term, for example, Council members conducted workshops for all students in English 124 and 125 on plagiarism and the importance of  proper citation.  Council members also play a vital educational role in academic meetings involving students accused of cheating or plagiarism. LSA Student Honor Council is a great way to get involved in the community and help promote that “Michigan Difference” of which we are all so proud!

We are looking for dedicated students to join the Council. Applicants must be LSA students and interested in actively promoting a culture of integrity on campus. Freshman and sophomores preferred.

For those who are interested in applying or have any further questions, follow this link www.umich.edu/~hcouncil/home/Membership.html or e-mail us at academicintegrity@umich.edu!
