The University of Hartford Honor Council was created by students in 2004.

The mission of the University of Hartford Honor Council is to build a visibly cohesive community of national and international honor societies, individually and collaboratively exhibiting excellence in scholarship, service, programs, and governance.

Member honor societies of the Honor Council are as divergent as knowledge itself. From education to physics, psychology to music, these organizations exist for one primary purpose: to encourage and honor superior scholarship and leadership achievement. Each honor society comes together to work as a team to uphold our primary purpose.

The Honor Council shall act as the coordinating agency for collegiate honor societies; provide facilities for the consideration of matters of mutual interest; define honor societies of the several types; cooperate with college and university faculties and administrative officers in developing and maintaining high standards and useful functions; and collect, publish, and distribute information and data.

The Honor Council is composed of all interested honor societies. Faculty members and administrators provide support to the Council in various ways; much of the programmatic avenues taken by the Council are done so in concert with faculty.

As the Honor Council at the University of Hartford, we endeavor to promote academic scholarship and personal integrity in all aspects of university life.
