Honors Faculty Resources

When the Honors Steering Committee accepts a proposal for an honors seminar, the faculty member who has proposed the seminar becomes a member of the Ithaca College honors faculty. The honors faculty meets on a regular basis to discuss the program and to engage in special faculty development activities. The bylaws of the Ithaca College Honors Faculty are found on the sidebar.

General authority for decisions regarding the honors program rests with the Honors Steering Committee. The Honors Steering Committee is selected in such a way as to represent a wide variety of academic areas and programs. The current members are:

  • Alicia Swords— Director, Ithaca College Honors Program
