Bryn Mawr is prominently featured in this December 21 Philadelphia Inquirer article about college honor codes. The article quotes Bryn Mawr student Emily Tong ’12 and Dean of the Undergraduate College Michele Rasmussen.
From the article:
“The honor code is part of the fabric of what it is to be a Bryn Mawr student,” said Michele Rasmussen, dean of the undergraduate college, who also serves on the honor board.
Rasmussen, who was previously at Duke, which had no honor code, said she was skeptical of the process at first.
“This whole notion of student self-governance was totally new to me,” said Rasmussen, in her third year at Bryn Mawr.
But it works, with guidance and advice from adults as needed, she said.
