2022 Upper Midwest Regional Honors Conference

Go check out the UMHC Conference webpage here:

For nearly two years, we’ve been living in a constant state of To Be Determined. We add TBD to invitations, event announcements, trips. Is this temporary or a “new normal” for the foreseeable future? How do we plan for TBD? How has TBD affected the way we do things in Honors? How has TBD affected our institutional contexts? How have Honors programs risen to this TBD moment to give our students good experiences in and out of the classroom? We’ll explore these ideas and more when we gather in Vermillion in April.

Conference theme: To Be Determined: Honors in an Uncertain Time

When: April 1st-3rd

Where: University of South Dakota in Vermillion, SD

Conference descriptionThe UMHC conference will feature sessions led by Honors professionals, student research presentations, and opportunities to network with other members of our region. Our hope is that attendees will leave the conference with new connections and new ideas.
