The University Council, on recommendation of the Commission on Graduate Studies, unanimously approved the Constitution of the Virginia Tech Graduate Honor System, dated April 19, 1991, which establishes a standard of academic integrity. The new document, extensively rewritten in response to a survey concerning the effectiveness of the original constitution, was approved by CGS, the Graduate Student Assembly, and the Virginia Tech General Counsel's Office.

Copies of the Constitution are available in the Graduate Student Assembly Office at Squires Student Center and at the Graduate School (Sandy Hall).

Following is the text of the resolution as adopted by Council.

WHEREAS, the current Constitution of the Graduate Honor System has been in use over a decade without revision, and

THEREFORE, LET IT BE RESOLVED THAT effective Spring Semester 1992, the revised Constitution of the Graduate Honor System will replace the existing version and will be included in the appropriate University publications.
