Kentucky Honors Roundtable, Spring 2019

Honors students presenting

The Kentucky Honors Roundtable (KHR) is a consortium of honors programs and colleges from institutions of higher education in Kentucky. Conferences are held twice per year and hosted by member institutions on a rotating basis. The conferences provide honors students with an opportunity to present scholarly and creative work, and build community and professional networks. Honors directors, deans, administrators, and faculty have the occasion to network and share best practices.

We look forward to hosting the KHR conference at Bellarmine on February 22-23, 2019.
