Alumni Magazine Article On The Honor Code

The current issue of the UVa alumni magazine has an in-depth article on the Honor Code. I'm disappointed that it has changed -- it is something that made UVa distinctive and special. But it seems to me that the kids of today see cheating rewarded in the world -- at least cutting corners. The sub prime loan disaster and PEDs to cite two examples. And the students of today are so darn competitive to get ahead.

Honor is not a transient value. Today's students are NOT learning an important life lesson about how to conduct themselves. I am a better, more honorable person because I signed the pledge to MY work product. I hope that the pendulum will swing back one day to where it was when I was a student at The U. Until then, when it comes to cheating, UVa is just another big state university.
