The Social System
The Social System was developed in 1994 as an outgrowth of the Honor System and in keeping with the philosophy that students should assume a significant role in shaping their lives at Lyon. The system establishes a code of conduct by which Lyon students agree to abide in their interactions with other members of the Lyon community.
The Social System is administered by students elected by their peers to the Social Council. The Council's responsibility is to uphold the College's Social System and to uphold the rights of each student during investigations and hearings. The Council investigates allegations, conducts hearings when necessary, and may impose penalties up to and including expulsion. A copy of the Honor and Social Codes can be found in the Lyon College Student Handbook.
