Expanding an Honors Program in the Midst of Institution Consolidation
Jacobs, Bonita C.
Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, v16 n2 p155-159 Fall-Win 2015
Institutions of higher learning have been facing budget constrictions throughout the country, leading to consolidations and cutbacks. Administrators often have to make hard choices about what programs to eliminate or cut back, but one program that is not on the table at the University of North Georgia is the honors program. The university is expanding and adapting honors to accommodate the changing nature of the institution; the university wants students at all levels to have the honors advantages of global opportunities, undergraduate research, civic engagement, and a sense of community. The history, background, and current mission of the program are briefly discussed in this article.
