Western Regional Honors Conference 2020

Western Regional Honors Conference 2020


The Honors Program at Southern Utah University is thrilled to welcome you to our campus on March 27th-29th for the annual Western Regional Honors Council Conference. This website will serve as the primary source of information for all things related to the conference. Updates will be available on a regular basis, so check back often!


The theme 20/20 Perspectives was selected for the 2020 annual WRHC Conference by a panel of honors faculty members at Southern Utah University. In honors education, we place a special value on the diversity of perspectives that our students and faculty members bring to our classes, programs, and colleges. “Hindsight is always 20/20” is a commonly quoted phrase when we reflect on the past. For this conference, we ask you to critically consider the ways in which we can improve our current and future perspectives in an effort to reduce our dependence on retrospective clarity.


A more detailed program will be available in February 2020.
