Honor & Integrity Board of Visitors Sub-Committee

The Penn State Values & Culture Survey identified challenges associated with observing and reporting misconduct for the University, as well as the Smeal community. The committee will provide suggestions for addressing these challenges within the student, faculty, and staff communities, drawing upon what their organizations are doing (or have done) to address similar issues. Ideas for consideration include, but are not limited to, the communications plan and the orientation and training programs.

The subcommittee will also monitor progress, based upon the college’s biennial ethical culture audit and University’s triennial survey.
