In the process of editing and updating the Wake Forest Student Code of Conduct, two model codes and other universities’ codes of conduct were used. The two model codes used were:

(1) The NCHERM Model Code: A model code created by The National Center for Higher Education Risk Management, a practitioners group, that was developed with a focus on private colleges and universities.

(2) The Stoner Lowery Model Code: A model code created by two scholars, Edward N. Stoner II & John Wesley Lowery, that was developed with a focus on public colleges and universities.
