Honors and Institutional Transformation
Ransdell, Gary A.
Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, v16 n2 p181-186 Fall-Win 2015
Honors colleges and programs often evolve in response to a mandate from boards of regents or trustees. Such mandates can lead to new or accelerated change within the institution, change that in many cases is linked to and represented by honors. Such has been the case at Western Kentucky University (WKU), where the honors program has played a key role in enhancing the national visibility and prestige of the institution. In this article the author, who is the president of the honors program at WKU, describes the program and how the investment in honors education over the past decade has not only enhanced the Honors College at WKU but improved the academic quality of the university.
