In September, Tanya Kevorkian, History, was elected by the Faculty Senate to serve as new chair of the Honors Committee.

The committee met four times this academic year; average attendance=8.

Motions forwarded to Senate:

Other deliberations/actions:
The Chair appointed two ad hoc members, effective Spring, 2002: Susan Luek, a previous Honors Committee chair, and Beverly Skinner, director of the MU Summer Honors Program for high school students. Both had attended meetings in previous years, and had contributed time and advice to the Honors College, but had not had a formal position on the committee.

The Committee approved a new Honors course proposed by Scott Schaffer, Sociology and Anthropology: SOCY 310H Sociology of Religion.

The Committee selected candidates and alternates for the SSHE Summer Honors Program, which Lock Haven University will conduct in Spain this year.

Matters currently in committee:
Members of the Committee are currently selecting recipients for Summer Research Stipends.

This Spring, the Committee and Director have been developing two advising tools:
  1. An updated Honors requirements sheet and accompanying question & answer sheet addressing questions that Honors students commonly ask.
  2. An updated faculty Honors Liaison system for each department.
Both of these will be ready to go by orientation/early Fall 2002.
