Western’s Kelsey Bennett to present at National Honors Conference

Oct. 9, 2017
 

Western’s Director of Honors Kelsey Bennett, Ph.D., is set to give a presentation at the upcoming National Collegiate Honors Council conference in Atlanta.

The conference, running Nov. 8-12, will highlight faculty and student research; provide development training for administrators; and focus on issues of technology, equity and access.

Bennett has organized a panel, “Asking Enduring Questions in Honors.” In this presentation, she and other recipients of grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) will discuss various models of NEH-funded honors courses—and how these courses can increase students’ understanding of the humanities, regardless of majors.
