Deadline March 31, 2014
The National Collegiate Honors Council is pleased to announce that applications are now available for grants which support program review and campus consultation visits by NCHC-recommended Site Visitors. These grants will help fund the costs for those NCHC member honors programs and colleges that would like to bring one or more seasoned NCHC professionals to their campus to assist with honors program review or honors educational development.
Honors education implies the highest standards for quality. Therefore, a consistent cycle of meaningful assessment, program review, and strategic planning is important for program growth. The National Collegiate Honors Council offers these grants as a way of assisting honors programs and colleges to implement widely-recommended evaluative practices.
A typical program review consists of a self-study document completed by the program or college and then forwarded to the reviewers in advance of the campus visit. Such reviews will provide recommendations for strategic growth and program development that have been found to be extremely useful in capturing precious on-campus resources. New honors programs or colleges, or those programs or colleges that have undergone recent leadership changes, are especially encouraged to apply. Grant recipients submit a brief report to the Assessment & Evaluation Committee following the site visit.
