The conduct process at Connecticut College approaches Honor Code violations from an educational perspective. The Honor Code encourages personal responsibility and accountability mindful of an individual's impact on the community. The sanctioning process provides an opportunity for students to reflect on their choices, the consequences of those actions, and make amends to the community.
Grounded in the Honor Code and the College's emphasis on shared governance, elected student representatives formally adjudicate alleged violations of the Connecticut College Honor Code and Student Code of Conduct. The Honor Council is advised by the Associate Dean of Student Life, Sarah Cardwell, and is a member of the Connecticut College Student Government Association.
Members of the campus community may access the Honor Code Incident form on CamelWeb (the College's intranet) to document or respond to an alleged infraction(s) of the Honor Code or other college policy.

Faculty Consultants to the Honor Council
Conduct Process Advocates (CPAs)
CPAs are available to any member of the Connecticut College community involved in a disciplinary adjudication process. The CPA has no involvement in the adjudication of any cases, serves as an impartial and confidential information source and can answer questions about any of the conduct processes from the standpoint of the complainant or the respondent. The CPA can also assist faculty members, staff, and students who wish to better understand the various processes. The positions of Conduct Process Advocates are filled at the beginning of the fall semester.
