    Membership in the SRHC

    The mission of the Southern Regional Honors Council is to promote and advance the Honors Programs and Honors Colleges in the South. The SRHC currently comprises 105 member institutions.

Support is offered to students participating in National Collegiate Honors Council-sponsored experiential programs, such as Partners in the Parks, NCHC Semesters, and NCHC Winterims, as well as for other research, programs, and projects in member institutions.
