Honors education frequently emphasizes the enrichment of the undergraduate experience through a focus on the ideals of a university education. These ideals include the study of our (human) place in the universe and how we might be the best stewards with our (human) knowledge. Whether we pursue disciplines in the sciences and mathematics, or the liberal and performing arts, we seek to enhance our understanding and to foster the best that humanity is capable of effecting. The town and county in which GSW is located has many fine examples from which to draw such inspiration and study; whether through the work of Jimmy and Rosalyn Carter, or with the efforts of Habitat for Humanity and the Fuller Center, or with the Andersonville National POW Historic Site, there are many local examples and partnerships that enhance the studies of various fields of scholastic inquiry. The Georgia Collegiate Honors Council invites students to submit proposals for academic or creative work that addresses issues that connect us with the world and universe at this critical moment in our ever shrinking world.
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.
For information about submitting proposals and for more information about the conference, contact Dr. Jeffrey Waldrop, Jeffrey.Waldrop@gsw.edu.
