Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of the Georgia Tech Honor Advisory Council. The Academic Honor Code provides an exciting opportunity for a select group of students to make a significant change in the atmosphere and community of Georgia Tech. The decisions the Honor Advisory Council makes now will affect students for many years to come.
WHO CAN APPLY TO BE AN HONOR ADVISOR?
Any Georgia Tech student who is in good academic standing can apply. Honor Advisory Council applicants should also have a strong sense of integrity, well developed interpersonal and communication skills, and a mature, confident self-concept.
WHAT ARE THE DUTIES OF AN HONOR ADVISOR?
In accordance with the Honor Code, the purposes of the Honor Advisory Council are to provide a central source of information concerning the Honor Code, counsel for students wishing to report honor violations, and assistance to students accused of an honor violation. Honor Advisors are also responsible for maintaining awareness of the Honor Code and promoting an ethical environment at Georgia Tech. Honor Advisors are expected to educate students and faculty about the honor code, organize events that encourage ethical behavior, and research current trends in academic integrity on other college campuses. In addition, Honor Advisors should act in a manner that reflects honor upon themselves, their position, and their institution.
WHAT IS EXPECTED OF AN HONOR ADVISOR?
One important aspect of the Honor Advisor position is the length of the term, which lasts until the student graduates or chooses to resign. This places the Honor Advisors in a unique position to have a lasting effect on the Georgia Tech campus. Because the responsibilities of an Honor Advisor are so great, a considerable time commitment is required. Depending on the week, you should expect to spend anywhere from a few to several hours a week in meetings, preparing and giving presentations, and other related activities.
HOW DOES THE APPLICATION PROCESS WORK?
The selection of Honor Advisors is based on an application and a personal interview. A timeline of due dates is listed below. The application form is attached and should be submitted at the front desk of the Dean of Students Office, Room 210 of the Student Services Building. When you turn in your application, you should also sign up for an interview time. Interviews will last about twenty minutes and the dress is business casual.
If you are chosen to become a member of the Honor Advisory Council, you will spend the semester following your selection learning about the Honor Advisory Council as well as contributing to and participating in the activities of the Council. At the end of your first semester, your performance will be evaluated, and if found sufficient, you will be voted in as a full member of the Honor Advisory Council.
