Abstract

The role in any university honors program is to provide an enhanced learning experience. Students who are enrolled in the honors program could gain hands on practical experiences and can be utilized in the real world. Additionally, honors program students can participate in research projects and potential internship approaching graduation. With these opportunities in mind, The GSU Honors Program seeks to expands its initiatives focusing on three strategies: connection, engagement, and long-lasting professional relationships with its alumni (Chaney et al., 2020).The purpose of this paper is to establish a framework correlated to the role of the University Honors Program’s strategic plan. Throughout this process, details to these following questions are addressed: What impact does the University Honors Program have on its students, and how are Honors Program students connected and engaged throughout their academic career? This question will address the significance of an honors program throughout its own strategic planning process and how these strategies can be incorporated in the future. Examining the literature will provide the necessary framework for understanding the purpose of an honors program, proceeded by strategic plans and goals established by the National Collegiate Honors College and how the GSU Honors Program can utilize these goals in its own strategy.

University Honors Program: Enhanced Learning Experiences

The role in any university honors program is to provide an enhanced learning experience. Students who are enrolled in the honors program could gain hands on practical experiences and can be utilized in the real world. Additionally, honors program students can participate in research projects and potential internship approaching graduation. With these opportunities in mind, The GSU Honors Program seeks to expands its initiatives focusing on three strategies: connection, engagement, and long-lasting professional relationships with its alumni (Chaney et al., 2020).The purpose of this paper is to establish a framework correlated to the role of the University Honors Program’s strategic plan. Throughout this process, details to these following questions are addressed: What impact does the University Honors Program have on its students, and how are Honors Program students connected and engaged throughout their academic career? This question will address the significance of an honors program throughout its own strategic planning process and how these strategies can be incorporated in the future. Examining the literature will provide the necessary framework for understanding the purpose of an honors program, proceeded by strategic plans and goals established by the National Collegiate Honors College and how the GSU Honors Program can utilize these goals in its own strategy.
