Honors programs offer ideal environments for structural and pedagogical design elements needed to connect theory and practice.  Ethical dimensions of civic engagement, commitment to active involvement in community, and linking coursework to socially responsible interactions are fostered by deliberate curricular design.  This workshop provides a laboratory for honors directors/faculty.
