The Student Council establishes a liaison between students and the Administration. It encourages students to become leaders, helps them gain practical experience and creates activities for all students.
Sheikh Zayed, may his soul rest in eternal peace, once said, "A brother should tell his brother: you support me and I will support you, when you are right, but not when you are in the wrong." As an honor council, it is our responsibility to promote this idea. We are here to encourage ZU students to be honest and honorable in all of their actions, and to speak up when we see or know of wrongdoings, even if it was from a close friend. W also encourage students to use this concept not only in the university but also in life.
What is an Honor Code?
The Honor Code constitutes the academic, intellectual and ethical standards expected from students, faculty and staff at Zayed University. This code was devised by ZU students to help set the guidelines for proper behavior at the university, and they are based on the values and ideas of our revered namesake, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.
Why is the Honor Code important?
Zayed University was founded on highest ideals of honor, respect and integrity, as it carries the name of the nation, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. As students of the only university to bear his noble name, we honor his vision and protect his legacy by standing for the same values and beliefs embodied by Sheikh Zayed.
When we agree to abide by the honor code, we are agreeing to act honorably in all of our actions and to preserve the proud name and reputation of Zayed University.
What is the Honor Council?
To assist with carrying out the message of Honor Code, there is a group of dedicated members, mostly students, who are committed to bringing awareness to the campus community about the expectations described in our Code. This group is known as the Honor Council and our job is to educate and encourage students to follow the Honor Council values.
