Honors Council 2020-2021

The Honors Council meets one to two times each semester for approximately 1 hour.  Our main order of business is to review and approve departmental courses for Honors credit and review and approve Honors Faculty nominations.    All materials for review are placed in D2L.  Meetings take place in the Honors Building Conference Room.
