Tell The Tribune: Has BYU’s Honor Code enforcement changed your view of the school?

(Rick Egan | The Salt Lake Tribune) Tyler Slade and Zoe Calcote stand for a moment of silence, as the they gather on the campus of Brigham Young University, with hundreds of BYU students at a rally to oppose how the school's Honor Code Office investigates and disciplines students, Friday, April 12, 2019, in Provo, Utah. A strict set of rules at Mormon-owned Brigham Young University banning things commonplace at many campuses such as drinking, premarital sex, beards and piercings is under new scrutiny — this time from students who want their university to be more compassionate with the punishments for violators.

Luke Staley, a former Brigham Young University football player, recently told The Salt Lake Tribune he believes the school unfairly or inappropriately enforces its Honor Code and that he may ask for his retired number to be removed from BYU’s football stadium.

“I still get goosebumps when I see my name and number up at the stadium,” Staley said. “I want to make it clear that I love BYU. But now I wonder if there’s more value for me to take down my name to raise awareness for how BYU is handling these issues.”

BYU students have been protesting in Utah and Idaho, saying that they’ve been forced to turn others in or face consequences, among other complaints. And an Instagram account has gone viral for sharing candid stories about students’ experiences with the Honor Code office.
