Audio: Inside UVA Episode 6: Andy Chambers(18:30)


The newest episode of “Inside UVA,” the podcast hosted by the president of University of Virginia, dives into one of the University’s most revered traditions: the honor code.

In his sixth episode, President Jim Ryan interviews the Honor Committee’s student leader for “Inside UVA,” which can be found on most podcast apps, including Apple PodcastsSpotify and Google Podcasts

Ryan conceived the podcast as a way to bring to light the inner workings of the University, with previous episodes featuring such guests as Executive Vice President and Provost Liz Magill, head football coach Bronco Mendendhall, and Whittington W. Clement, rector of UVA’s Board of Visitors.

Andy Chambers, who chairs the student-run Honor Committee, took a seat behind the mic this week. Chambers is the Frank W. Hulse IV Jefferson Scholar, and hails from Columbus, Georgia.

When students enroll at UVA, each makes a commitment not to lie, cheat or steal, and the Honor Committee helps adjudicate accusations that a student may have committed an honor offense. In his conversation with Ryan, Chambers talked in depth about his role as chair and how seriously students and the University take the honor code.

At turns lighthearted and serious, the discussion also veered into some surprising territory. Without giving away too much before listeners tune in and hear for themselves, we can tell you that Chambers also builds guitars and once ran his own landscaping company. Listen to learn more.
