Honors Steering Committee

The Honors Steering Committee provides direction on honors education at FSCJ, advising the director on major policies, and serving as representatives of the Honors Program in their respective departments. The Honors Steering Committee has a representative from each of the five general education areas for the Associate in Arts Degree and includes representatives from Academic Advising, Curriculum & Instruction, the Library and Learning Commons, and the Social and Behavioral Sciences Department Chair. Meetings usually occur twice each fall and spring term. The Honors Director prepares the agendas, chairs meetings, and keeps records as the committee finds useful. Any member may offer items for discussion as the Honors Steering Committee sees fit.
