Celebrating 27 Years of Academic Distinction

The mission of the National Association of African American Honors Programs is to support and advance the learning community of Honors Programs and Honors Colleges in all historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and predominately black colleges and universities (PBCUs) in the United States of America.

 

 NAAAHP’s activities include:

ANNUAL CONFERENCE         

The Annual Conference of NAAAHP provides honors students with opportunities to contend academically in quiz bowl, debate and Model African Union competitions. Students engage in professional seminars, present scholarly research and STEM poster presentations, and gain exposure to post-undergraduate options with a Career and Graduate School Fair. Faculty engage in professional development opportunities that promote leadership skills, curriculum development, teaching and learning pedagogies and best practices in Honors.

PROFESSIONAL LEADERSHIP TRAINING

 A spring team building and leadership conference for national officers and committee chairs of NAAAHP is hosted to expose and equip professional elected officials with standards and best practices in leadership development.  With an emphasis on equity, access, race, class and gender, professionals convene to plan conference goals and foster resources that heighten the community of educational institutions, professionals, and students attending the NAAAHP Annual Conference.

 

WORKSHOP SESSIONS FOR EDUCATORS

Equity and Diversity in Teaching, Assessing and Learning Kinships (EdTALK) is a conference designed exclusively by NAAAHP for administrators, curriculum and instruction developers and educators at the 9-12 and post-secondary levels. The hands-on workshops and informative sessions promote effective instruction and innovative ways to engage students, enhance curriculum, and increase productivity to transform the future of the art and science of teaching and life-long learning processes.

Published annually, the work of students and faculty of institutions who are current members are eligible for submission.  Submissions must be original works that have not been previously published.

 "Honors Mindset" - Acrylic on Canvas - 36x24" 

 Copyright Synthia SAINT JAMES 2017

Designed exclusively for the 26th Annual Conference of the National Association of African American Honors Programs, Honors Mindset is a piece that depicts the mental and practical progress of African American Honors students on a journey. Artist Synthia SAINT JAMES captures the rare essence of undergraduates matriculating in a variety of disciplines while highlighting the habits and talents of the world’s future leaders.

With a direct emphasis on the modern African American college student, Honors Mindsetrepresents a collective experience of the historically and public black college and university community, while yet allowing each student/discipline to function as their own character. This work serves as a product of pride and strength for those who have sojourned and an inspiration of greatness for those to come.
