The Penn State Smeal College of Business will offer a spring semester opportunity to sign the Smeal honor code. Signing sessions will take place on Jan. 29-30 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Atrium of the Business Building on the University Park campus.

Signing the honor code in the fall semester is an annual tradition at Smeal. This year, prompted by continued student interest, a spring signing session has been added for those new to the Smeal community.

“Our community’s commitment to honor and integrity has been impressive,” said Charles Whiteman, the John and Becky Surma Dean of Smeal. “This is a chance for new members of our community to join the movement and indicate their commitment to the code.”

The honor code is the foundation of an academic integrity initiative at the college that traces its roots to 2006 when members of the Smeal community began working together to establish a code and related processes. The code reads: “We, the Smeal College of Business community, aspire to the highest ethical standards and will hold each other accountable to them. We will not engage in any action that is improper or that creates the appearance of impropriety in our academic lives, and we intend to hold to this standard in our future careers.”
