History

Purdue pledge honor tracks stretch between Haas Hall and the Psychological Sciences Building.

The Purdue Honor Pledge was developed by a group of passionate student leaders after a 2015 university study about academic integrity. The results of the survey showed that students and faculty members alike believed that cheating was a serious issue on campus. The effort to stimulate the culture on honesty at Purdue was initiated by the determined group of students after they researched how other schools combat cheating. The Purdue Honor Pledge makes the core values of the code of conduct more accessible and helps to ingrain it within student culture.

Now, the rejuvenated mission is incorporated into daily life at Purdue, starting from freshman orientation at Boiler Gold Rush to course syllabuses. With the addition of the "Honor Tracks", a stretch of sidewalk with train tracks and words from the pledge between Haas Hall and the Psychological Sciences Building, Purdue students are reminded daily of the high academic standards to which they hold themselves.
