My name is Maura Dillon, and I hope to be a member of the Honor Board for the 2013-2014 year.
Here at Bryn Mawr, the community thrives with the guidance of the the Honor Code, which makes our undergraduate experience unique from other schools. When there is a violation of the Honor Code, there is a negative impact on the community. As a member of the Honor Board, I will strive to handle these violations appropriately and fairly. I will be sure to respect everyone involved by keeping any information confidential. I also hope to reinforce the message that the Honor Code exists to help students play an active role in preventing, addressing, and solving issues. On a broader scale, I have an interest in criminal justice and restorative justice, and I have explored these issues both inside and out of a classroom setting. I hope to use my passion in this field to contribute to our community!
In my time at Bryn Mawr, I have enjoyed the opportunity to get involved on campus. I am the Liturgy Chair for the Bi-Co Newman Catholic group, where I help plan events and set up for the services on the two campuses. I have also spent time volunteering on campus, working with Gotwals After School Program for three of my semesters here, and assisting with a Doctoral research study in psychology. These activities have helped me to learn time management and organizational skills, as well as how to interact with people in a personal and professional manner. I hope to bring these skills into my role as a member of the Honor Board to best serve our self-governed community.

One of the many unique and brilliant traits of Bryn Mawr College, and maybe even the most important, is our Honor Code. The Honor Code strengthens both the academic and social communities in such a powerful way that it sets us apart from others as an extraordinary learning experience. When I transferred to Bryn Mawr my sophomore year, I was searching for this exact kind of support; the invaluable support that comes from reinforcement by my own peers. I am running for the position of 2014 Honor Board member because I strongly believe in the values of academic propriety and social integrity, so we can maintain Bryn Mawr’s safe, collaborative, honest, close-knit, and most of all awesome community.
Hi everyone! I’m Maria and I am running for the 1-year Honor Board 2014 position. I see this position as an opportunity for me to give back to the campus which I so fondly call ‘home’. The Honor Code is central to life at Bryn Mawr, both academic and social, and it is what holds us together as a community. I believe the Honor Code embodies certain qualities that must be emphasized: trust, respect, and fairness. Trust and respect for others as well as for oneself are necessary characteristics that allow for self-governance and the free, open spirit unique to Bryn Mawr. Fairness is important in accepting and enforcing the Honor Code as a way of living.
The role of the Honor Board is to uphold these ideals and provide a supportive environment for everyone on campus. Keeping this in mind, I plan to work with the above mentioned aspects in order to promote the Honor Code as an integral part of our college life. As a senior member at Bryn Mawr, I have a lot of experience in leadership and service both on and off campus, and I have contributed to the community in different ways during my time here. I would like to continue to do my part until and even after I leave Bryn Mawr, and this position is a perfect chance for me to do exactly that. Finally, I sincerely look forward to serving you on the Honor Board this year!
Hi, my name is Sam Terry ’14 and I’m a Political Science major. Many of my courses at Bryn Mawr have focused on social justice and community politics which, I think, is rather fitting considering the position I am running for: 2014 Honor Board Representative! The honor code is one of the things that makes Bryn Mawr such an exceptional institution of higher learning. Our faith in self-governance, collective accountability, community respect, and when necessary individual restoration, fosters growth and empowerment that extends beyond academia. I view this position as an opportunity to engage in a meaningful process that maintains and actualizes these values. A contribution I would like to make if elected is the facilitation of a conversation about negative and positive rights. Much of the discourse surrounding the honor code is what you, as a member of the Bryn Mawr community should not do, I would like to discuss what positive actions can the honor code promote to invigorate the community and by extension provide more purpose to the honor code itself. As Co-President of Radnor, I am cognizant of the rewards as well as challenges associated with assuming a leadership role on this campus. I am confident in my ability to navigate both with the enthusiasm I approach every task and the seriousness afforded to such an important position. As a senior, I am hyper conscious that this is my final year to make a lasting impact at Bryn Mawr and I would be honored (ha!) to do so through the honor board.
