Proposing a new Honors-in-Discipline Program
There is definitely room for growth in terms of expanding Honors-in-Discipline offerings; the Honors College welcomes collaboration with faculty who want to design and implement new Honors-in-Discipline programs. If you and your colleagues are interested in proposing a new Honors-in-Discipline program, please contact Dr. Carson Medley (423-439-7886) or firstname.lastname@example.org) who will be happy to meet with you to discuss HID programs and the program creation process.
When submitting a proposal, use the Honors-in-Discipline Program Proposal Cover Sheet, which summarizes program characteristics, and a full proposal according to our HID Proposal Guidelines. The main components of the proposal are:
- Proposal cover sheet
- Academic program of study
- Student admission, retention and graduation requirements
- Program coordination and student advisement
- Recruitment and program enrichment activities
- Additional resources needed
Proposals for Honors-in-Discipline programs require review and approval by the University Honors Advisory Committee. Final approval comes from the Academic Council. Proposals will be reviewed for compliance with Honors-in-Discipline program criteria. Honors-in-Discipline programs do not require Curriculum Committee approval although individual new courses must be approved by the typical curriculum process.
