Honors Program Governance
The program is led by the Honors Program Director, who works in conjunction with the Honors Council. The program is a member of the National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC), The Southern Regional Honors Council (SRHC), and the National Association of African American Honors Programs.
All honors program students are governed by the Clark Atlanta University Student Handbook, published each academic year, which contains the guidelines for student behavior. Further, it is expected that honors program students will conduct themselves in an honest, respectful manner both inside and outside the classroom. Each student is expected to attend class regularly; provide advance notice of expected absences, assist other honors program students; perform and present research at local, regional, national and international conferences; attend and participate in honors program-sponsored events and meetings; cultural events; debates, forums, workshops, and all other academically challenging activities. Honors program students are expected to behave in a collegial manner towards each other, faculty members and administrators. Proper procedures and policies should be followed when addressing academic or student affairs concerns.
