Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

Online Resources

As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation continues to develop on campuses worldwide, many are choosing to conduct coursework virtually in place of in-person classes. As you prepare to make this shift for honors-specific classes, you can find an Online Honors Courses toolkit on our member website. Resources have been contributed by members of NCHC, and you may share your own helpful uploads to the toolkit as well.


NCHC Awards

NCHC continues to accept submissions and nominations for a variety of awards and grants. If you have submitted an application for an NCHC award or grant, we thank you for your patience as review times and notifications may be extended.

The NCHC is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for members and event attendees, and we are taking appropriate precautions as we plan upcoming events in 2020. We continue to monitor developments related to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and its impact.
