The conference program is ready! 

Virginias Collegiate Honors Council holds two conferences each year. The Fall Conference, usually held in September or early October, is attended by VCHC Executive Officers, faculty and student representatives, and the directors and deans of the Honors Programs and Honors Colleges from across Virginia and West Virginia. The primary purpose of this conference is to plan the spring conference and address any council business.

The Spring Honors Conference, usually held in March or April, is a forum for Honors students from Virginia and West Virginia institutions to present their scholarly work publicly and to network with other Honors students. Participants typically present results from an Honors project, an independent undergraduate research project, or an original work (i.e art, dance, literature, instrumental or vocal music, or poetry) as an individual oral presentation, a group presentation, or within the poster session.  

Honors students are invited to present their research and projects in various formats at the Spring VCHC conference. Presentation formats include 15-20 minute oral presentations, poster presentations, and 5 minute flash talks. Presentations can be completed projects, projects in progress, or project proposals. A link to the presentation application is a the top of this page. All applications are due by March 15, 2024. Applications will be notified in time to complete early bird registration. Abstracts must be a maximum of 200 words and must be approved by the appropriate Honors Director or Dean prior to submission.
