The University Code of Honor Committee assists in the education of the Notre Dame community about academic integrity and the Academic Code of Honor. It also reviews standard penalties invoked for certain kinds of violations so that consistency and fairness may be maintained.

College Honesty Committees are located within each academic unit to advise and educate faculty and staff, as well as to investigate and adjudicate potential Honor Code violations brought to their attention. Each Honesty Committee is composed of six faculty members and six students, including one faculty member who functions as the Advisory Resource Person for the academic unit.
