Honoring the National Parks: A Local Adaptation of a Partners in the Parks Adventure
Digby, Joan; Nolan, Kathleen
Honors in Practice, v14 p129-141 2018
The National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC) has long recognized that collaboration among institutions is important to honors education. In addition to its annual NCHC conferences, which offer a large forum for sharing ideas, NCHC has fostered and supported a variety of collaborative programs such as Honors Semesters and Faculty Institutes, the most recent of which is the Partners in the Parks Program (PITP), which--like its predecessor programs--is designed not only to provide educational opportunities for students and faculty in honors but to inspire educational innovations within honors programs and colleges across the country. PITP has already begun to spin off such innovations. The adaptation of the PITP program "Fire Island to Ellis Island" in a college course called "Honoring the Parks" demonstrates the way that colleges and universities can use NCHC resources to inspire new educational opportunities on their campuses.
