All participants in the discussion were members of the University Honors Program Committee. Since all in attendance were strong supporters of an Honors College and very much aware of the distinctions between an Honors Program and Honors College as well as of the rationale for establishing an Honors College, discussion attempted to anticipate what some of the likely criticisms to the establishment of an Honors College would be. The major areas of criticism were expected to be impressions of elitism and need for limited resources that could be used elsewhere. Participants discussed various possibilities for an Honors College.
