Wouldn’t you like an opportunity to share
your class or research project with other Honors students and
administrators via a poster or presentation at a regional or national
conference? Poster presentations are great resume-builders and they are
also a good way to gain experience in making professional presentations.
Each year, Texas Tech University Honors faculty and staff travel with
Honors students to GPHC and NCHC conferences to present at the regional
and national levels.
The Honors College will host students who have not attended GPHC in the past. These students will not be required to conduct a presentation or present a poster at this conference. However, preference will be given to students who will present a paper or poster.
Students interested in attending the GPHC or NCHC conferences must submit an application to the Honors College by January 31st of each year. Students who present at GPHC are then eligible to attend the National Collegiate Honors Council conference the following fall. Costs for lodging, transportation, registration and most meals will be covered by the Honors College for those posters or presentations submitted to the Honors College and accepted by the conference.
The Great Plains Honors Council serves collegiate honors programs in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Texas. Coordinating its activities with the National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC), the Great Plains organization promotes the flow of information, ideas, fellowship and professional encouragement throughout its member programs.
The National Collegiate Honors Council values an atmosphere that promotes academic opportunity and challenge for Honors students and faculty. Within this intellectual environment, members of Honors communities demonstrate integrity, respect, and excellence. Through the Honors experience, participants realize enhanced personal, social, and intellectual development. The NCHC recognizes the importance of life-long learning and social responsibility in preparing individuals for an increasingly complex world. These beliefs and values are reinforced among member institutions through the collegiality and shared purpose of the NCHC.
