Middle Georgia State College header underline

Macon, Georgia
February 7 & 8, 2014

Conference Theme: "Honors Without Borders"

Call for Proposals


Honors education frequently emphasizes the breaking down of traditional boundaries. These include the borders that are normally erected between the classroom and the "real world," between the campus and the community, between one's own society and other cultures, and between different academic disciplines. The Georgia Collegiate Honors Council invites students to submit proposals for academic or creative work that seeks to transcend these or other traditional borders.A female student giving a presentation

Papers and posters will be considered.

As always, the Georgia Collegiate Honors Council welcomes proposals that represent excellent undergraduate work even if the topic does not directly address the conference theme.
