UVa Students to Vote on Honor System Changes

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Students at the University of Virginia will vote this week on a proposed change to the school's honor system.

If approved, it would be the first major change to the system in years.

The Daily Progress (http://bit.ly/XP9TPh ) reports that the proposal would eliminate juries of random students. It also would give the accused an opportunity to confess and face a one-year suspension instead of expulsion.

At least 10 percent of the students must vote. Sixty percent of the vote is required for the proposal to pass.

Voting begins Monday and continues through Thursday.

The honor system prohibits students from lying, cheating or stealing.
