NASHVILLE (TSU News Service) – The National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC), a professional association of undergraduate honors programs and colleges, has named TSU’s Dr. Sandra Holt to its Diversity Committee for 2013.
Dr. Holt, Director of the Honors Program and the Women’s Center at TSU, received notice of her appointment in a letter from NCHC President Dr. Rick Scott, which also recognized Holt’s leadership role in NCHC work.
“Your investment of professional expertise, time, and resources is a significant contribution to NCHC’s mission of advancing honors education,” the letter said.
NCHC represents more than 900 honors programs and colleges throughout North America, Europe and Asia, serving collegiate honors education through training, publications and conferences.
The prestigious organization provides support for institutions and individuals developing, implementing, and expanding honors education through curriculum development, program assessment, teaching innovation, national and international study opportunities, internships, service and leadership development and mentored research.
“I am honored not just to be a part of this prestigious organization, but to be named to its Diversity Committee has a special meaning for me,” said Dr. Holt. “This also offers us the opportunity to highlight the outstanding initiatives we are implementing here at TSU.”
As a member of the Diversity Committee, Dr. Holt will help in developing strategies to increase diversity in the NCHC; work with the Planning Committee in developing presentations for the annual conference; as well as contribute to NCHC periodicals and materials on issues of diversity. At the NCHC National Conference this year (November 14-18) in Boston, Dr. Holt, along with Dr. William Latham, Associate Director of the TSU Honors Program, will present a paper on “Engaging Honors Students: Implications for Learning Style and Pedagogy.”
“I look forward to the challenge of presenting before this group and the honor it brings to not just us but also to our institution,” Dr. Latham said.
