The Honor System is the foundation from which we start our community at Washington & Lee and its administration is overseen by the Executive Committee of the Student Body. It has defined and shaped the students, alumni and faculty of this institution for well over a century. Here you can learn about the history, philosophy and procedure of the honor system, as well as public notices regarding recent cases.
Executive Committee of the Student Body President: Elizabeth Mugo '19
Student Self-Governance is a key aspect of Washington & Lee and is overseen by the Executive Committee. Here you can get a copy of the student body constitution; learn about current student body issues through the minutes of our weekly business meetings; view a list of current Executive Committee task forces; and obtain information about elections and the Voting Regulations Board.
During each meeting of the Board of the Trustees, the President of the Executive Committee meets with the Campus Life Committee of the Board to discuss concerns on campus. For the October 5th meeting, the EC will be taking in input through this form, townhalls, and through email. All comments, letters, and messages submitted via the following form or the EC’s email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) will be presented to the Campus Life Committee of the Board of Trustees and will be provided to all members of the Board via the EC President. We ask that students with any concerns or comments for the Board use one of these avenues to communicate. Identifying information is not required, but students should give context as they see fit. Responses will be delivered electronically and by paper.
