(2010 Conference in Tulsa) (2011 Conference in Arlington)
The Elliott T. Bowers Honors College is affiliated with the National Collegiate Honors Council, the Great Plains Honors Council, and the Gulf Coast Intercollegiate Honors Council. Each of these honors organizations holds annual conferences, to which we are pleased to send selected honors staff and students, all expenses paid.
In 2008, we took a team of students to the NCHC conference in San Antonio, where they gave a terrific presentation on our Ambassador Program.
In 2009, we attended the NCHC conference in Washington, D.C.
In 2010, Four of our honors students attended the 2010 GPHC conference in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
In April 2011, four more students traveled to the GPHC in Arlington where they partipated in conference activities, gave scholarly presentations, and socialized with students from other universities.
In 2013, two honors students attended the Great Plains Honors Council conference in Canyon, Texas—hosted by West Texas A&M University. One of the students presented a scholarly research paper, which was also entered into the Boe Competition for best paper.
We will aggressively continue to support student travel to honors conferences, as well as joining academic departments in supporting student travel to conferences in their academic disciplines.
