Honors Advising Institute June 25-27, 2017
According to the new NCHC Program Review Instrument, honors students should receive honors-related academic advising from qualified faculty and/or staff. In this intensive workshop, we will discuss key theoretical foundations of advising and how to implement those frameworks in the context of advising honors students.


New Directors Institute July 9-11, 2017
The NCHC New Directors Institute provides new honors directors and deans with best practices in curricular management and research, based on shared experiences from NCHC colleagues. Participants will take part in sessions including: developing your honors program; creating budgets and curricula; addressing staffing /administration issues in honors; and identifying key resources and allies on campus.


Program Reviewer Training July 12-14, 2017
Program reviewers fill a critical need in NCHC by providing members with a valuable service while gaining expert experience in honors on a national scale. This institute is also an excellent introduction to the process of program review; if you are preparing for a review, attend for an inside look at the process. (This workshop is required for candidates submitting an application to be an NCHC-recommended program reviewer.)
