  • The Role of an NCHC-Qualified Site Visitor
    I value the synergy found within our community of educational institutions, professional, and students who participate in collegiate honors education, and I stand with the National Collegiate Honors Council in efforts to support and enhance our community partners. To that end, I view the role of the program reviewer to be impactful for both the reviewer and those reviewed.

    As a reviewer, I can be a more effective advocate, learning through personal interactions the breadth and diversity of our various programs. I can better appreciate the particular challenges and opportunities evident at our sister institutions; I expect to find points of personal inspiration and aspiration through these visits.

    As a reviewer, I hope to likewise empower those whose programs I visit. I trust that as a program reviewer I will effectively perceive, illuminate and assess the mission and aspirations of my host program, promoting discussions and analyses that will encourage ongoing improvement. I recognize that each host institution has an individual, distinctive mission; I must provide an evaluation that respects this individuality while using procedures that represent professionally appropriate best practices. I view the practice of assessment to be a sustaining cycle of review and refinement; I must provide an evaluation that recognizes both immediate and further opportunities. I believe that a reviewer must be committed to provide a quality product to the host program and must demonstrate integrity and ethical behavior throughout the process.
