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: Mason Grist '18
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.
Student leaders representing the Executive Committee, the Student Judicial Council, the Student Bar Association, Residence Life, the InterFraternity Council, the Panhellenic Council, the Student Association for Black Unity and Hillel have drafted and signed a Student Body Resolution reaffirming our commitment to civil dialogue and interaction within our community as we head into a year of reflection and difficult discussion. We invite all W&L students to read the resolution and add your name.
