“Help, I Need Somebody”: Rethinking How We Conceptualize Honors, Richard Badenhausen 2010 Westminster College

“Help, I Need Somebody”: Rethinking How We Conceptualize Honors, Richard Badenhausen

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

The very morning I received the JNCHC announcement of an issue devoted to honors students in trouble, I met with the mother of a freshman honors student who had threatened that weekend to kill herself. The parent, who had flown over two thousand miles to our campus, was predictably upset and the student demoralized. After individual conversations with each party, during which we decided the best course of action for the student would be to leave honors, I listened to this young lady make the courageous admission that she had never wanted to join the honors program but did so ...


The Balkanization Of University Support Systems: Ferpa’S Chilling Effect On Campuses And How Honors Administrators Can Break The Ice, Amy Beth Cyphert, Keith Garbutt 2010 West Virginia University

The Balkanization Of University Support Systems: Ferpa’S Chilling Effect On Campuses And How Honors Administrators Can Break The Ice, Amy Beth Cyphert, Keith Garbutt

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

One of the outcomes of the way FERPA has frequently been interpreted was the Balkanization of student support services that exist on a university campus, particularly at large universities. As the cabinet members noted in the Report to the President on the Virginia Tech tragedy, “information silos” at universities “impede appropriate information sharing” and “are heightened by confusion about the laws that govern the sharing of information” (Leavitt, Spellings, and Gonzales, 7). At our institution, by the first day of classes a first-year student will have signed up to five separate FERPA forms, each one pertaining to a particular aspect ...

Dedication: Charles (Jack) Dudley

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

As this issue of JNCHC goes to press, Jack Dudley is beginning the fifty-third fall semester of his academic career (from freshman through honors director to retired part-time instructor) and is at least a contender for the NCHC record. Having earned his bachelor’s degree at the University of Georgia and Ph.D. from the University of Oregon, Jack started his teaching career back at his alma mater before joining the faculty of Virginia Tech University in the Department of Sociology. He was appointed Director of the Virginia Tech Honors Program in 1990, a position he retained until his recent ...

Crisis In The Wilderness, Joan Digby

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

All experiential education programs involve the potential for students to experience a crisis far from the secure environment of campus and home. Students engaging in these programs are therefore required to carry medical and travel insurance and to complete the waiver of liability forms particular to their college or university. Even as they gather this documentation, honors directors sending students to or leading such programs hold their breath and hope that they will never need to use the emergency contact information.

This has been our collective hope during the past four years that we have offered Partners in the Parks ...


Managing Trouble In Troubled Times: A Responsibility Of Honors, Charles Dudley 2010 Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University

Managing Trouble In Troubled Times: A Responsibility Of Honors, Charles Dudley

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

The best approach to honors students is to acknowledge that they are fully operating adults. This approach is the only and best way to confront the troubles that interrupt academic progress. Trouble requires either capitulation or growth. In a society that treats college as preparation for a job, honors holds out the hope that we can accomplish the crucial task of helping young people become strong and moral leaders in all areas of life. How we assist them achieve such a status determines our success and integrity as a special component of a university. The willingness and courage of our ...

Editor’S Introduction, Ada Long 2010 University of Alabama - Birmingham

Editor’S Introduction, Ada Long

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

As the terrible news came across our screens on April 16, 2007, honors administrators across the country thought with sympathy and horror of Charles (Jack) Dudley and his students in the Virginia Tech University Honors Program. Eventually we learned that our worries were sadly justified and that three of Jack’s honors students had been killed, one had been wounded, and all had been traumatized. Our thoughts and messages flowed toward Jack on that day and the days following as we all felt sorrow for him and his students and at the same time felt the terrifying possibility that we ...


Honors Programs In Four-Year Institutions In The Northeast: Apreliminary Survey Toward A National Inventory Of Honors, Richard England 2010 Salisbury University

Honors Programs In Four-Year Institutions In The Northeast: Apreliminary Survey Toward A National Inventory Of Honors, Richard England

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

Honors education, as we know, is a curious phenomenon, particularly from the perspective of those interested in institutional research. It is not a discipline per se, and so it is not given a “Classification of Instructional Programs” (CIP) code by the National Center for Education Statistics. Accordingly, the federal Integrated Postsecondary Educational Data System (IPEDS) does not include any information on honors. Honors is part of the Common Data Set (part E.1 “Common Data Set,” 2009) overseen by the College Board and an assembly of national post-secondary-education organizations. That instrument lets colleges state whether they have an honors program ...


Hitting The Wall, Bonnie D. Irwin 2010 Eastern Illinois University

Hitting The Wall, Bonnie D. Irwin

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

Much has been written over the last several years about the increase in the number of students who come to our campuses with behavioral disorders and under medication. While honors students are certainly not immune to these conditions, the more frequent emotional trauma we see them suffer is their first encounter with failure. Luckily, we can address this trauma successfully if we are prepared to do so. As honors faculty, we encourage intellectual risk, knowing from our own experience that failure may very well result but confident in the fact that learning also happens despite other outcomes, good or bad ...

Dedication: Norm Weiner

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

Norm Weiner has been a visible and vocal presence in the NCHC for almost two decades, adding zest to the effectiveness and passion of the organization. Having received his Ph.D. at Syracuse University, he has been a faculty member at the State University of New York, College of Oswego since 1971 and SUNY Distinguished Service Professor of Sociology since 1998. Norm has thus weathered more than forty winters in upstate New York, which may explain part of his stamina and grit. His extensive administrative background may be another part of the explanation: in addition to his position as Director ...


Go Honors!, Joan Digby 2010 Long Island University - C W Post Campus

Go Honors!, Joan Digby

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

It comes to me as quite a surprise—and really a great shame—that honors and athletics are, as Sam Schuman describes, “often seen as, if not hostile, certainly wholly disconnected collegiate endeavors.” For more than thirty years I have had quite a different experience, which includes congratulating four long-distance runners and one Olympic speed-walker as honors valedictorians. I have always cultivated honors athletes, and coaches have always come to me directly to package athletes with honors scholarships. I may have reaped my rewarding experiences with athletes in part because I teach at a Division II NCAA campus where the ...


A Collaborative Recruitment Model Between Honors And Athletic Programs For Student Engagement And Retention, Rich Eckert, Ashley Grimm, Kevin J. Roth, Hallie E. Savage 2010 Clarion University of Pennsylvania

A Collaborative Recruitment Model Between Honors And Athletic Programs For Student Engagement And Retention, Rich Eckert, Ashley Grimm, Kevin J. Roth, Hallie E. Savage

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

Acommon need in honors education is to recruit a student cohort that actively engages in educational experiences, demonstrates a motivation for academic challenge, and is likely to complete the honors program. Honors programs use varied quantitative (Green & Kimbrough) and qualitative admissions criteria to yield this desired student cohort. However, research is limited on the value of quantitative measures, i.e., SAT scores, grade point average, and/or class rank, in predicting qualities such as student engagement or outcomes such as program completion.

Attempting to recruit a more diversified student cohort and to increase student engagement, the Clarion University Honors Program ...

Editor’S Introduction, Ada Long

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

At regional honors conferences, which typically occur around the same time as the NCAA and NIT basketball tournaments, many of us have facetiously wondered aloud whether basketball teams and their coaches spend as much time talking about honors as we spend talking about basketball. Back on our home campuses, a more serious connection between honors and athletics programs often takes the form of mutual recruitment efforts, schedule coordination, arrangement of make-up tests, co-advising, and enthusiastic attendance at sports events when honors students are in the competition. Many honors programs and colleges also sponsor their own sports events, fielding intramural teams ...

Honors And Athletics: The “Sound Body” Thing, James S. Ruebel 2010 Ball State University

Honors And Athletics: The “Sound Body” Thing, James S. Ruebel

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

I have always hesitated at the aphorism mens sana in corpore sano. When Juvenal originally wrote in his tenth Satire that “we should pray for a sound mind in a sound body” (orandum est ut sit mens sana in corpore sano), he was not exalting physical and mental perfection; he meant only that our health is more important than the false benefits of greed and vanity (Sat. 10.356). In the modern Olympic environment, corpus sanum is clearly exalted above mens sana, and the ancient Olympics were, if anything, worse; David C. Young has written a sobering account of the ...

College Sports, Honors, Five Liberal Lessons, And Milo Of Crotona, Sam Schuman

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

At the very dawn of the sixteenth century, Michelangelo liberated from a large chunk of discarded marble the most famous statue in the history of western art. After a few centuries standing outside the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, today his David resides in the Galleria dell’Accademia, the academic gallery, where he contemplates his victory over Goliath, and daily hundreds of tourists and art lovers contemplate him. This incredible work of sculpture seems today to have two primary functions. The first, alas, is to provide a certain number of giggling philistines with sophomorically smutty postcards and other souvenirs that focus ...


The Place Of Play In Twenty-First Century Classrooms: Evidence And Approaches, Sandra Ludlow 2010 Avondale College

The Place Of Play In Twenty-First Century Classrooms: Evidence And Approaches, Sandra Ludlow

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

Do our current ways of teaching our young children actually foster the development of effective skills and dispositions for twenty-first century living? A number of authors, (Pink, 2005; Golinkoff & Sharp 2009), have commented that solutions to the issues associated with the rapid development of knowledge in the twenty-first century, issues and problems involved in environmental sustainability and issues of national security, will require answers from individuals who have the ability to communicate, collaborate, think critically, be creative and innovative, confidently approach challenges and have content knowledge (Golinkoff & Sharp, 2009, p. 6). They identify these skills as being the ones that ...
