I really like the "external facing" point--I think that would be really helpful and conveying to "outsiders" what we're all about.

Can we get a URL as well as the QR code?

Kevin's mention of annual report prompts me to commend the idea of organizing principles around essential themes that, happily, mirror the typical major concerns addressed in program reviews. I like the synchronicity of the new document with program review practices and report writing.

My email is bussj1@nku.edu. The 1 looked like an l in the PPT.

Bravo to the committee for producing this creative and inclusive revision. LONG overdue. Thanks for your hard work.
Stacey Sinclair
01:01:01
Ditto! So exciting to see this!

As a new Honors College Dean and am very grateful for this document. Thank you very much!
Allen Culpepper, Tulsa CC
01:01:57
I think it's a really good document. I note that there are a few spots where the word "university" is used but maybe "institution" or "institutional" might be better given the range of NCHC member programs/colleges
Richard Badenhausen (he/him)
01:03:26
Thanks, Allen - good point
Cindy Ticknor
01:04:59
Great idea Linda
Ada Long

Gratitude and congratulations to all of you for a fabulous new way of talking about and defining honors--a huge improvement over the Basic Characteristics, which were born in controversy. I can't imagine any honors educator not appreciating the spirit and substance of what you've created.
Jennifer Schlegel, Kutztown U (she/her)
01:08:19
Thank you so much for this work! And if NCHC is able to link to related documents - like research on enrollment, as Linda mentioned, or updated budget information, that would be helpful. Must sign off for student appointment...
Beata Jones (she/her)
01:09:54
Thank you so much for bringing the honors principles into the 21st century and making them so much more relevant. Would it be appropriate in this document to back up the principles with references to existing research?
John Zubizarreta
01:10:09
Given the remarkable growth of honors worldwide, I appreciate the inclusion of global emphasis as one of the principles. The leadership provided by this NCHC document will likely be easily embraced by other honors endeavors around the globe.
Sam Wallace
01:11:17
I'm not seeing reference to what makes Honors distinct from "normal" student work-- creativity, personalization, deeper analysis or broader synthesis . . . Have I just not taken enough time with the document?
Ruma Chopra
01:12:49
Sam - important question - thanks for asking it
Beata Jones (she/her)
01:12:57
Or would it make sense to add a section on how these principles came into being?
Allen Culpepper, Tulsa CC
01:12:57
Re Sam's question: I'm still reading around in the document, but I agree that the distinction between honors and non-honors is something we are constantly asked about, so it does seem like something to address
Suketu Bhavsar (he, him)
01:13:10
Sam, I have been pondering a version of your question the last couple of years. Are best practices limited to Honors?
Ruma Chopra
01:14:17
Suketu - there is an assumption still that the Honors students want “more” right? If not in the old way, then in a new way…? So the best practices are for a more directed group…?
Allen Culpepper, Tulsa CC
01:14:20
One question we get a lot is, now that a lot of the long-time honors practices have sort of resurfaced as "high-impact practices," if everyone does HIPs, then what's special about honors
Alannah Rosenberg
01:14:39
The recognition of the "third space" between academic and student affairs is spot-on. Thank you.
Sam Wallace
01:14:41
They should not be limited to Honors, but we should be able to do more with our population.
Ruma Chopra
01:15:09
Almost all Honors practices appear as HiPs! Hadn’t connected that until just this moment...
Allen Culpepper, Tulsa CC
01:15:32
I hope the answer is the "community" aspect of honors
Cindy Ticknor
01:15:37
Great work. Thank you!
Ruma Chopra
01:15:57
The cohort aspect is unique
Professor Torda (she / her / hers)
01:15:59
And what this shows is the base premise of the ad hoc: continuing discussion of what honors is . . and can be.
Linda Frost (she/her)
01:16:22
Gotta run to another meeting; wish I could stay to keep hearing the conversation!
Ada Long
01:16:23
good point, Christina!
Christina Denison
01:17:00
Thank you for the document. I look forward to sharing it with our administrative team, staff, and faculty for their input. Off to the next meeting.
Alannah Rosenberg
01:17:03
Another meeting calls. I'm sorry to have to go.
Suketu Bhavsar (he, him)
01:17:14
Yes, I second Ada. Christina, you made an important point.
Ruma Chopra
01:17:28
The doc is great - valuable in many ways
Allen Culpepper, Tulsa CC
01:17:30
I want to say again that I really like the document
Suketu Bhavsar (he, him)
01:17:59
