… recent report in the Virginian-Pilot finds that UVA has not expelled a single student for anything other than infractions of the school’s vaunted Honor Code in the past five years. The Pilot story, written to explore safety in the wake of the Virginia Tech massacre, compares expulsions at the various state universities. While UVA topped the tally with 115, tiny honor-infused VMI, with 67 expulsions, appears to have the highest rate.
It’s nice to see my alma mater represented well. The honor code at VMI was and is simple:
“a cadet does not lie, cheat, steal, nor tolerate those who do.”
And apparently still enforced regularly.
