Digby, Joan – Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, 2020
Patricia J. Smith's argument for professionalism based on Caplow's outdated model is inappropriate for honors administration. The steps outlined are misleading, and the use of the perennially controversial Basic Characteristics as a prescription for professionalizing honors is historically inaccurate and has no place in framing the future of…

Fazioli, K. Patrick – Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, 2020
Patricia J. Smith's essay on the professionalization of honors advances several original and provocative arguments that deserve serious consideration.

Cunningham-Bryant, Alicia – Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, 2019
Faculty and administrators often present risk-taking as something honors students must do, but rarely do they take risks themselves. In an ideal situation, communal risk-taking would subvert institutional power dynamics, free students from grade-associated anxiety, and enable them to build dynamic partnerships with faculty. This paper discusses…

Many study abroad programs promise students self-knowledge through adventure. Those that involve intense study seem at first sight not to offer adventure nor to entail risky dislocation nor to offer new insights into self. However, evidence from study abroad students at the University of Oxford reveals that they describe intellectual endeavor as…
