These rights include access to any evidence against them and the right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty. A listing of students' procedural rights can be found in Section IV.A of the Instrument of Student Judicial Governance

These responsibilities must not only be met, but exceeded, for Carolina’s Honor System to continue to thrive.
