The Role of an NCHC-Qualified Site Visitor
 An effective site visitor should demonstrate a broad awareness of academic and administrative practices.  Site visitors are colleagues who contribute their knowledge, informed by this awareness, and a judgment based on relevant experience in honors education. We gain as much as we provide in our roles as consultants, recognizing the mutual benefits for all parties. My career-long role in academic administration is particularly useful, I believe, in relating each visit to the perspectives not only of faculty and students, but also of the administrators who must support them. Extensive experience in planning, assessment and program review, and advice derived from it should be a key element in every site visitor’s role, and in the concluding recommendations.
