Occupy Honors Education. National Collegiate Honors Council Monograph Series
Coleman, Lisa L., Ed.; Kotinek, Jonathan D., Ed.; Oda, Alan Y., Ed.
National Collegiate Honors Council
The title of this monograph, "Occupy Honors Education," refers to the Occupy Movement that originated in the United States in New York's Zuccotti Park in 2011 and to the principles that informed the movement and its resistance to an economic status quo benefitting the top one percent in America. Importantly, however, the editors encourage readers to note that the concerns articulated by the Occupy Movement about diversity, access, and inclusion parallel the formulation provided earlier by Finnie D. Coleman in "The Problem with Diversity: Moving Past the Numbers," the closing chapter of the first National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC) diversity monograph, "Setting the Table for Diversity," edited by Lisa L. Coleman and Jonathan D. Kotinek, and published in 2010 (see ED566710). The editors of this volume conceived of education generally, and honors education specifically, to be bound up with preparing graduates to engage the democratic process productively. The questions of who is represented in that educated population, whether or not there are differences in access, and who is included in decision-making processes are integral to the honors mission. The Occupy Movement articulated principles for action that highlight how traditional structures in US culture are inadequate to address these concerns. The voices highlighted in this monograph add depth and value to the conversation about diversity in honors and provide a vision for how honors can lead the way in achieving inclusive excellence.
