Honors Roundup: NHCH Student Board Nominations, Research Publication Opportunity, & Cine con Cultura 2020

Student Board Nominations

Students: Picture Yourself at the NCHC Board Table…

Nominations are still being accepted for student positions on the National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC) Board of Directors, including both 1-year and 2-year terms. Because student nominees must have support from their honors director to run, nominees can download the form below, and return it completed to the NCHC Office before November 15. Accepted nominees received in advance will be presented as part of the slate at the online Annual Business meeting. Nominations will still be accepted at that meeting, date yet to be determined..

…but what’s in it for you?

“Running for the board provides a unique opportunity to voice your opinion, and bring the perspectives from your school and community. Our organization is made up of a bunch of different universities and programs, and being part of the board gives us a chance to collaborate on the future of honors.”

Amber Rolland, University of Central Arkansas

UReCA Submissions


This year I have the honor of serving as Chief Editor of NCHC’s Journal of Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity. UReCA provides students the opportunity to have their academic and creative pursuits published alongside the work of some of their brightest and most dedicated peers. We receive submissions from schools both in the United States, as well as from institutions overseas, and each of our associate editors studies at a different NCHC-affiliated university. We strive to show the power of undergraduate work by transcending the boundaries of state, region, and discipline.

Each year I am inspired and impressed by the submissions we receive, and I hope to help as many students as possible have the opportunity to share their work. We encourage you to share this information with your students and with colleagues who may supervise undergraduate academic and creative endeavors. Our submissions deadline is October 16th. In the meantime, feel free to direct any questions my way. Below you will find a link to our 2019 publication. Thank you!
