NCHC Award for Administrative Excellence

The role of administrative professional in an honors office is an essential one. Administrative professionals do it all -- from the day-to-day operations to the big-picture thinking that helps honors students succeed and their honors organizations reach their goals.

Many administrative coordinators and assistants have dedicated years of hard work and commitment to ensure the standard of honors education is carried on within their own respective programs—and have helped to maintain the strong network among NCHC institutions.

NCHC wants to celebrate the outstanding professionals that keep your honors program or college running like clockwork, with a special recognition award.

The 2024 NCHC Award for Administrative Excellence recipient will receive an award at the Annual Conference this fall, and recognition in the conference program to thank them for their service and commitment to honors.
