For over 50 years, the NCHC Annual Conference has set the standard for honors education. Attended by over 2,000 honors faculty, staff, and students every year, the conference is a unique venue for all members of the honors community to come together and present their research among one another, and represent their honors program. 

This year’s Annual Conference is from November 7-11, in Boston, Massachusetts. Inspired by bell hooks's groundbreaking text Teaching to Transgress: Education as the Practice of Freedom, the conference theme, “Learning to Transgress,” will explore the manner in which a critical consciousness can lead to liberatory practices in education.

NEW FOR #NCHC18: Print Program Add-On

In support of the NCHC’s commitment to sustainability, a print copy of the conference program will no longer be complimentary with registration. A printed copy of the #NCHC18 program can be purchased for $10 and must be selected on the next page for each individual attendee. Printed programs will only be available until the Early Bird Deadline to allow for printing time. We encourage you to share within your group or go paperless for 2018.

If you opt not to have a printed program, we have two FREE digital and convenient options for you!

  • A searchable PDF copy of our entire program will be available on our website prior to conference.
  • The NCHC conference app provides a full event schedule with the ability to build your own custom schedule, view our sponsors and speakers, receive notifications, updates, and much more.

The app will be available for download with a code for the NCHC event coming this summer. Watch for details as our schedule develops!
