    The Role of an NCHC-Qualified Site Visitor
    The Site Review is not a process for accreditation or certification, however, a site visit does allow for objective reflection and recommendations for Honors programs and colleges in order to improve, grow, and for use as leverage for continuous quality improvement.
    As a site reviewer, it is necessary to:
    • Have a well‐developed understanding of intended outcomes of the site review.
    • Be comprehensive in the site exploration to include websites, blogs, newsletters, interviews
      with faculty, staff, students, alumni and administration, and campus visits.
    • Identify perceived strengths and weaknesses in a program using the characteristics of a fully
      developed Honors program/college as a guide.
    • Identify ways to improve, make suggestions, advice, and negotiate, if necessary, with faculty,
      staff and upper administration.
    • Submit documentation to the host institution for insights, historical record, and for a guideline
      to follow for future adjustments in the program.

    Additionally, it is my expectation that the collaborative efforts in examining other programs will do a great deal in improving my own program through the exchange of ideas, processes, and programming.
