The applicants are screened by the Council’s Electoral Board which consists of the outgoing chair of the Judicial Commission, the four outgoing officers of the Campus Union, the six outgoing senior delegates of the Campus Union, the Dean of Students, and two members of the faculty. The Board will pass the names of those applicants it approves to the six outgoing members of the Honor Council who will elect from those approved by the Board the Honor Council members. In making its selection of new members of the Honor Council, the Board and the seniors on the Council give primary consideration to a candidate’s moral character and commitment to the promotion of academic honesty.
