Honors Program

The Honors Program at Southwestern Community College is designed to pair faculty and students to develop term long projects to award eligible students with Honors Credit.  It is a great way to stay connected with current research and mentor students.

Faculty are encouraged to use materials from the Library to develop their courses.  The library offers bibliographic instruction and web based research guides for students.  In addition they welcome your input in developing the library collection to support your specific program needs.   Library Materials can be accessed using this link(Login Required)

Professional Development

Southwestern is committed to the continuing growth and development of its faculty. The College expects individual faculty members to take initiative in establishing and achieving goals for their professional development.
Development encompasses two major areas: teaching and learning and professional engagement.  While this plan provides flexibility to meet your individual needs, there also is responsibility and accountability. At your end-of-year evaluation (Performance Evaluation), you will be expected to provide the documentation verifying your development activities.
