Participating Institutions

The University Honors College at Oregon State University is pleased to invite you to attend the second Honors Education at Research Universities (HERU) National Conference. The conference will be held at CH2M Hill Alumni Center on the campus of Oregon State University in Corvallis, OR, from Monday, May 18, 2015 through Tuesday, May 19, 2015.

HERU is the brainchild of members for the Committee on Institutional Cooperation in recognition of the vitality and strength of honors education. At the second, bi-annual, conference, we will share best practices and build collaborations that will strengthen the case, and the place, for honors education at research universities. Honors leadership, senior administrators, educators, and managers in the areas of admissions, recruitment, and selection; development and alumni relations; academic affairs; and student affairs, including student programming and career development, will all find something of value and have opportunities to network with like-minded colleagues from Honors Colleges and Programs across the U.S. We look forward to welcoming you, in person to the beautiful Willamette Valley in May 2015.
