Helping Honors Students In Trouble, Angela M. Salas 2010 Indiana University - Southeast

Helping Honors Students In Trouble, Angela M. Salas

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council Online Archive

Although I am no expert in effectively helping troubled students, I hope that the Indiana University Southeast Honors Program serves as a place of refuge and support for all its students, most particularly those who are in any sort of trouble. Because my students, whether in the honors program or in my English classes, are reluctant to acknowledge the existence of any difficulties, I have found the Noel-Levitz College Student Inventory (CSI) and Student Satisfaction Inventory (SSI) helpful in bringing to light impediments to their success and happiness of which I might otherwise be unaware.

Since 2007, when the honors …

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 retirement—but not …

Honors Students In Crisis: Four Thoughts From The Field, Eric W. Owens, Michael Giazzoni 2010 Duquesne University

Honors Students In Crisis: Four Thoughts From The Field, Eric W. Owens, Michael Giazzoni

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council Online Archive

As we considered the topic and lead essay of the JNCHC Forum “Helping Honors Students in Trouble,” we were struck by a number of assumptions that seem to be prevalent not only at our universities but among colleagues at other institutions. We have identified four assumptions we would like to address in this essay from perspectives that are informed by the scholarly literature and by our combined experience of twenty years working with honors students as professional counselors, advisors, and faculty members. These four observations lead us to recommendations for others working with honors students.


Honors And Intercollegiate Athletics, Gary Bell 2010 Texas Tech University

Honors And Intercollegiate Athletics, Gary Bell

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council Online Archive

Can there be anything more graceful and more athletically inspiring than a downhill slalom racer carving between the gates and proceeding at stunning speeds to vie for a medal? As a passionate skier, my personal favorites are downhill races and ski jumps, but whether it be ice dancing, figure skating competitions, triathlons, or even snowboarding, the recent Vancouver Olympics, in all of their international pomp and circumstance, reminds us of the place of athletic competitions in defining our humanness. It is exactly as the lead author, Sam Schuman, would have it in his well-written essay: the limits but also the …


Learning Outcomes Assessment In Honors: An Appropriate Practice?, Scott Carnicom, Christopher A. Snyder 2010 Middle Tennessee State University

Learning Outcomes Assessment In Honors: An Appropriate Practice?, Scott Carnicom, Christopher A. Snyder

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council Online Archive

In its ideal form, systematic assessment is a legitimate way for honors programs and colleges to gauge strengths and weaknesses, measure the effect of various learning environments, and evoke positive institutional change based on objective, empirical data. Such assessment can take two main forms. Programmatic assessment (also known as program evaluation) is an extremely useful tool for gathering evidence and evaluating whether an honors program embodies the NCHC’s basic characteristics (Sederberg 159) and/or meets its own institutional goals, e.g., higher rates of retention, graduation, graduate/professional school acceptance, and successful competition for national fellowships. Furthermore, as Otero and Spurrier argue (5), …


Honors Director As Coach: For The Love Of The Game, Larry Clark 2010 Southeast Missouri State University

Honors Director As Coach: For The Love Of The Game, Larry Clark

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council Online Archive

Conflict: if we are to believe some of the great probers of the human mind like Freud and Shakespeare, it goes to the very core of our existence. Look at our history books. The great conflicts form the timeline of our American past: the Revolutionary War, the French and Indian War, the War of 1812, the Civil War, the First World War (“the war to end all wars”), the Second World War, Korea, Vietnam (even if it was only a “police action”), Iraq, Afghanistan; and that’s skipping over some “minor conflicts” in Granada, Kosovo, the Persian Gulf, and elsewhere. Where …


Student Athletics And Honors: Building Relationships, James J. Clauss, Ed Taylor 2010 University of Washington

Student Athletics And Honors: Building Relationships, James J. Clauss, Ed Taylor

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council Online Archive

Few university administrators today would argue against having more student athletes applying for and successfully completing honors curricula. Such students are great for PR. But, sad to say, coaches and faculty, at least at tier-1 universities like the University of Washington, are often suspicious of each other’s intentions. Some coaches see too much focus on education as a threat to their team’s success and ultimately their jobs; some faculty see athletes, especially in the revenue sports, as uncommitted to education, exploited by universities, and biding their time in school to enter the lucrative professional careers they believe await them. Yet, …


Dedication: Norm Weiner, 2010 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

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 of …


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 coaches encourage …


Listening Lessons, Margaret Walsh 2010 Keene State College

Listening Lessons, Margaret Walsh

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council Online Archive

Whether they embrace the descriptor or not, many honors students seek out and spend time with students in their cohort, defining themselves as part of an affinity group. While some view their privileges as well earned and necessary for success, others, who may love the depth of study that honors offers, prefer to see themselves as individuals with multiple interests. They see their membership in an honors program not as their primary status but as one among many identities. An equally important reason that students may not wish to emphasize their honors status is that, when trouble arises, they find …


Bridging The Jock-Geek Culture War, Bradley J. Bates, Carolyn A. Haynes 2010 Miami University

Bridging The Jock-Geek Culture War, Bradley J. Bates, Carolyn A. Haynes

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council Online Archive

In his headline address at the Radio and Television Correspondents Annual Dinner last summer, comedian John Hodgman called the strife that exists between “jocks and geeks” the “culture war of our time.” His speech playfully argued that many tensions in American life stem not from differences in politics, culture, race or socioeconomic status but instead from differences in the ways athletic and scholarly types view the world. As directors of an honors and an athletic program at the same institution, we have discovered that each of our programs holds the capacity to freshen the outlook of the other precisely because …


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 initiated …

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 …


Information And Communication Technology Literacy Among First-Year Honors And Non-Honors Students: An Assessment, Boris Teske, Brian Etheridge 2010 Louisiana Tech University

Information And Communication Technology Literacy Among First-Year Honors And Non-Honors Students: An Assessment, Boris Teske, Brian Etheridge

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council Online Archive

Today’s students should be able to retrieve and critically evaluate information from digital media; to organize, interpret, and apply the information; and to compose an effective presentation that responds to a clearly articulated research problem and communicates to a particular audience. These skills have been of special concern to the honors community, as evidenced by the 2009 JNCHC Forum on “Honors in the Digital Age.” Development of these twenty-first-century competencies, called information and communication technology (ICT) literacy, is the object of a curriculum enhancement project underway in the honors program, jointly with general education, at Louisiana Tech University. Recently, in …


Is Mens Sana In Corpore Sano A Concept Relevant To Honors Students?, Kate Wintrol 2010 University of Nevada, Las Vegas

Is Mens Sana In Corpore Sano A Concept Relevant To Honors Students?, Kate Wintrol

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council Online Archive

Belief in a “healthy mind, healthy body” is as relevant to twenty-first-century honors students as it was to their ancient counterparts. The ancient Greek athlete and the honors student-athlete both share the dedication and discipline needed to excel, and our culture still finds praiseworthy those who exhibit excellence in both mind and body. At the University of Nevada Las Vegas, the library is sponsoring a poster series promoting literacy by featuring student-athletes reading their favorite books. An honors college student athlete will be featured in the near future, a symbol of distinction somewhat akin to Myron’s Discobolos (Discus Thrower).
