Abstract

The 2019 National Collegiate Honors Council Conference in New Orleans was a beneficial experience for our honors program here at Governors State University. It was a fantastic opportunity for us to speak with other honors student council members from all across the Nation. These other honors programs have established impactful learning opportunities that have greatly increased the involvement in their honors community. As a relatively new honors program, we are looking into new ways of implementing opportunities in the community of Governors State University. Our goal during our time here at Governors State University is to build a stronger community by engaging all honors students to be actively involved in events that we create. We will do this by setting up more community service opportunities, creating mindfulness activities, and more frequent retreats to take learning outside of the classroom.

Faculty / Staff Sponsor

Dr. David Rhea, Honors program sponsor.
