Honors 21st Century.
Itawamba Community Coll., Fulton, MS.
Itwamba Community College is attempting to develop and implement a comprehensive honors program by the 2000-2001 academic year. The first students to graduate from the honors program will do so in May of 2001. In order to graduate with honors students must: (1) meet all of the requirements for a two-year degree with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher; (2) complete one honors seminar; (3) complete two honors contracts; (4) perform specified community service; and (5) complete the leadership development seminar. An honors contract can be attached to any college-level course and is therefore an extension of a parent course and not a new and separate course. Faculty members are encouraged to participate in the honors program as mentors and are given financial incentives for their participation. A mentor is awarded a $250 initial writing bonus for writing an approved honors contract, $100 for the first student enrolled in an honors contract, and $25 for each additional enrolling in the same contract. However, no more than five students may be enrolled in a single contract. This document includes samples of an honors contract, an honors contract review, a mentor's interview report, a mid-term evaluation, a final evaluation of an honors contract, and a mentor log. (TGO)
