Honors Committee Bylaws

Mission

“Snow College continues a tradition of excellence, encourages a culture of innovation, and cultivates an atmosphere of engagement to advance students in the achievement of their educational goals” (Mission Statement of Snow College, 2011). The Honors Program enhances this mission by providing students with the opportunities for small classes, taught by exceptional faculty, that encourage vigorous discussion, collaboration, and critical thinking. In addition to classes, the Snow College Honors Program facilitates student travel (such as field trips to significant cultural experiences) and other out-of-class interactions (book clubs, socials, etc.).

Membership

Any faculty member committed to the mission of the Honors program may be a voting member of the committee. It is desired to have representation from many different disciplines within each division.

Organization

The Snow College Honors Program is led by a director (or two co-directors) who are selected by the Provost in consultation with the Honors committee. The director/co-directors serve(s) a three-year term. With approval of the Provost and Honors committee, the director/co-directors may serve up to two consecutive three-year terms.

Operations

Presiding Authority: The Snow College Honors Program director/co-directors shall be the presiding officer(s) at all formal meetings. In the absence of the director (or both co-directors), the meeting shall be adjourned.

Meetings will be held as needed, generally twice a semester.

Meetings are open to all faculty and staff members except during executive sessions.

Any committee member may recommend items for the agenda.
