Do Haverford students know their own student representatives? We asked, 45 of you answered. Congratulations to Cole Sansom and Clerk editor-in-chief Maurice Rippel with the only completely-correct responses and a shout-out Ben Horowitz ‘17, the only enthusiastic alumni to play along.

Meet the Honor Council Co-Chairs

I wanted to ask not just about what ...

Earlier this month, editors from the Clerk sat in the lobby of the Dining Center to ask passing students if they could name just five: their class representative in Students’ Council and their four class representatives in Honor Council.

Editorial: A Note about Transparency

The Clerk was founded on a simple promise: “to create a community forum for all stakeholders to discuss issues that affect us.”  From that promise came the value of transparency, to which The Clerk has dedicated much of its substantive work for a long time.  The very word, “transparent,” is inscribed in our values statement.  It is a word that we hold dear, and ...

The Supreme Court, Honor Code, and The Muppets: Reform for Free Speech and Expression

While the former aim rests on the objective truth that cheating is immoral, t ...

All three original resolutions had points of contention, but the largest drama of the night came when students voted to split Resolution #3 into two separate resolutions, an unprecedented move in recent Plenary history.

What Happens when Honor Council Trial Resolutions are not Completed?

Several weeks ago, Haverford’s Honor Council released an abstract called Bones. In the abstract, the confronted party did not complete its trial resolutions and attempted to subvert Honor Council by returning to campus for classes the next semester despite being separated from the community. The trial raised questions from students about what power Honor Council has when ...

Seasonal Appropriation a Growing Issue on Campus

Representatives from Haverford College’s Honor Council met this Friday to discuss what is quickly becoming one of the most contentious issues on campus: seasonal appropriation. Concern arose when a heated discussion in a social psychology seminar turned physical on Tuesday. Three students arrived for class wearing snowflake-patterned sweaters on the balmy fall afternoon ...

Eight Resolutions Passed at 2015 Spring Plenary

Haverford’s Spring 2015 Plenary was an unusually busy one, passing eight resolutions in three hours after reaching quorum within 30 minutes. Of the nine resolutions up for consideration, only the eighth, “Eliminating Gender Categorization in Freshman Housing,” failed to pass after students mentioned the difficulty of implementing the resolution during the pro-con deb ...
