Describes a study of honors programs in 28 Florida community colleges. Found that 22 of the colleges offer honors programs, the programs vary widely, more females participate than males, programs tend to emphasize the humanities, and that students credit the programs with academic rigor, increased retention, and a sense of belonging.
