Recruitment into honors targets post-secondary, not post-traditional learners, and highly structured honors programs often limit nontraditional students’ participation and make honors unattractive. New results from the Yarrison-Kohl study of honors students’ needs, perceptions, and values may help directors better invite these students into honors, welcome them, and retain them.
