Honor Board cases, spring term 2012

Each term, the Honor Board secretary issues a report to The Knox Student detailing cases heard during the past 10 weeks. Names of complainants and respondents have been redacted to protect confidentiality. Full redacted reports on cases are available to members of the Knox community in the Office of the Associate Dean of the College. A verdict of “no decision” means that the Board could not reach a consensus on guilt; thus, no penalty was assigned and no further action was taken.
