This poster will present findings from surveys administered to Honors Program students enrolled at a two-year, access-oriented, commuter campus of a larger university in order to measure their perceptions of course delivery and program requirements. The presenters developed these surveys in response to low program retention and student frustrations related to time commitment. Based on the data, pathways are suggested for helping these students maximize the academic benefits of Honors Program participation, especially the importance of undergraduate research initiatives that foster critical thinking skills. Attendees will be encouraged to exchange ideas about Honors curriculum, undergraduate research support and scaffolding, and building campus community around academic excellence. Despite its emphasis on Honors Program administration, this poster will be helpful to any faculty or staff looking for strategies that enhance student learning at a variety of institution types.
