Who Are We?

The Georgia Collegiate Honors Council (GCHC) is an organization formed for the promotion and advancement of honors education in institutions of higher learning in the state of Georgia.

Colleges and universities offering honors programming or having an interest in offering honors work are eligible for institutional membership. Memberships in GCHC may also be held by other institutions, such as foundations or educational organizations, with an interest in honors education.

Each year, GCHC hosts its annual meeting at a selected college or university in Georgia. More about the annual meeting and conference can be found at the link on the left.
