11.8.6. Definitions

11.8.6.1. “Investigatory Panel”

A subset of a full honor council having a quorum of four persons, including at least one student, at least one faculty member, a secretary, and any fourth member. However, up to all 10 persons on the given full honor council may serve on a particular investigatory panel. Investigatory panels carry out “Investigations.”

11.8.6.2. “Judicial Panel”

A full honor council having a quorum of six persons, including at least one student, at least one faculty member, a secretary, and any other three members. However, up to all 10 persons on the given full honor council may serve on a particular judicial panel. Judicial panels carry out “Hearings.”

11.8.6.3. “Alumni Members”

If the secretary anticipates that it is unlikely that a quorum will be satisfied for a given meeting, he/she may substitute as many alumni honor council members as needed to guarantee quorum. An alumni member is any member of the campus community with satisfactory honor council experience (as judged by the honor council secretary) within the previous five years and who is still enrolled in courses (for student alumni members) or employed by the University (for faculty alumni members). The term “alumni” is meant to signify previous honor council service, not graduation from Oglethorpe University.

11.8.6.4. “Honor Council”

A generic term which can mean the entire honor council corpus or any subset of that collection, including investigatory and judicial panels.
