Vander Zee, Anton – Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, 2017
The five-paragraph essay is a hard genre to love. Its inverted-triangle intro has enlightened us with too many "dawns" of some monolithic "man." It reduces arguments, which tend to be rather subtle creatures, to the confines of a single-sentence thesis. It confects arguments in bland triplicate structure, as if any claim could…

Rhea, David M. – Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, 2017
Many honors programs make admissions decisions based on student high school GPA and a standardized test score. However, McKay argued that standardized test scores can be a barrier to honors program participation, particularly for minority students. Minority students, particularly Hispanic and African American students, are apt to have lower…

Rushton, Lia – Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, 2017
When I was appointed fellowships advisor at UAB back in the late 1990s and before the formation of the National Association of Fellowships Advisors, as a first order of business I spoke with the university's few former winners and finalists about their experiences applying for nationally competitive scholarships. One such former applicant, now an…

Reddick, Richard J.; Johnson, Emily A.; Jones, Ashley; Lowe, Tracie A. J.; Stone, Ashley N.; Thomas, James – Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, 2017
From the inception of the integration of predominantly White institutions in higher education marked by "Sweatt v. Painter" in 1950, The University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin) has been a battleground for educational equity. The university continues to find itself at ground zero in the battle for race and equity in higher education and…

Mould, Tom; DeLoach, Stephen B. – Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, 2017
While studies of predictive factors for success in honors have been increasingly creative and expansive on what these factors might include, they have rarely challenged the dominant, virtually monolithic definitions of success. The majority of studies measure success either by collegiate grade point averages (GPAs) or retention rates in honors,…

Scott, Stephen C. – Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, 2017
As a recent alumnus of the West Virginia University Honors College, I recognize my honors experience as a multi-faceted, intellectual journey that pushed me academically, professionally, and personally to become the lifelong learner that I am today. As the only Black honors student in my graduating class, I was aware of my tokenism, especially in…

Knox, John A. – Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, 2017
Honors programs, as home to the highest test scores and highest GPAs on many campuses (for reasons that are not particularly justifiable), can become assembly lines for prestige-scholarship applications and their dangling appendages, the applicants themselves. As honors programs become cogs in universities' PR machines, they decouple from their…

Basta, Hannah – Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, 2017
From the dawn of the Roman Empire, slavery played a major and essential role in Roman society. While slavery never completely disappeared from ancient Roman society, its position in the Roman economy shifted at the beginning of the period called Late Antiquity (14 CE-500 CE). At this time, the slave system of the Roman world adjusted to a new…

Hester, Jacob Andrew; Besing, Kari Lynn – Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, 2017
For decades, research has shown that higher levels of education correspond to increased interest in politics and civic engagement. Despite the vast amount of scholarly attention, why this link exists is still disputed. One theory about the connection is the civic education hypothesis, which claims that the causal link between education and civic…

Scott, Richard I.; Smith, Patricia J.; Cognard-Black, Andrew J. – Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, 2017
Beginning in 2013 and spanning four research articles, we have implemented an empirical analysis protocol for honors education that is rooted in demography (Scott; Scott and Smith; Smith and Scott "Growth"; Smith and Scott, "Demography"). The goal of this protocol is to describe the structure and distribution of the honors…

Bickford, Leslie – Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, 2017
Making writing less scary for students and focusing on the messy, recursive nature of writing helps students use the writing process to bring forth the thoughts that might otherwise not find their way into essays. Students who revisit their writing also revisit their thinking and are empowered to cultivate and articulate that thinking in clearer…

Cobane, Craig T.; Jennings, Audra – Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, 2017
High-impact educational practices (HIPs) have long been central to honors pedagogy. From undergraduate research to service learning, study abroad, internships, and writing-intensive courses, these practices shape the honors educational experience and influence retention successes in honors. These practices also inform the synergy between honors…

In this article, Beata Jones attempts to organize the honors discipline into a comprehensive framework that can guide explorations and shed light on specific attributes of honors entities in the framework of their interrelationships. The framework offers an approach to deal with the inherent fragmentation of the field, which can lead to…

Byler, Dorvan – Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, 2016
The religious contexts in which early Christian communities grew were important factors in the first-century development of Christianity, affecting what it meant to become a Christian--either as a convert from a background in Judaism or as a convert from a background in Greek, Roman, or Egyptian cults. Surrounding religions and cultural norms…

Mariz, George – Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, 2016
Research in honors has become a priority for the National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC), and the phrase presents the honors community with an interesting ambiguity about the appropriate focus for future studies. Potential topics might include the progress of honors students in comparison to their non-honors cohorts; the criteria for selecting…
