56th NCHC Annual Conference | October 27-31, 2021 | Orlando, FL

"Reimagine Honors: Past, Present, Future"

The global pandemic has caused us to reimagine our daily lives. In the process, we have been forced to reimagine how we do teaching, learning and community building within education, higher education, and honors education. There is no going back and while some adaptations have actually enriched honors experiences, the lack of personal connections and organic intellectual conversations has hampered the impact of honors engagement on our students’ lives.

How do we take the lessons learned from this time, personally, professionally and for our honors programs and colleges, to imagine a future we could not have envisioned just a few years ago?



Join us Orlando, FL to rediscover and reimagine honors at NCHC21!

  • Sessions and workshops for honors, by honors! Topics for administrators, faculty, staff, and students
  • Networking with old friends and new colleagues, to grow your community of honors professionals and contacts
  • Sponsors and vendors sharing information about graduate program and internship opportunities, classroom technologies, honor societies, study abroad excursions, and more
  • Excursions by Partners in the Parks and City as Text™ in a unique setting on the boundary of the Walt Disney World property
  • CAT: Orlando Master Class: An opportunity for faculty with prior City as Text™ experience (through a Place as Text Faculty Institute) to engage in an intensive exploration prior to the 2021 Annual Conference. (more details coming soon)
