If you are currently serving on one or more Honors Undergraduate Thesis committees and have not enrolled in the HUT Webcourse for students OR the Thesis Chair Resources Webcourse, please email firstname.lastname@example.org requesting the invitation link.
Become a Thesis Chair
There is a growing demand for faculty members to serve as thesis chairs for incoming Honors Thesis students. We are asking qualifying faculty who are interested in being thesis chairs to fill out this short survey: www.tinyurl.com/HUT-thesis-chair. The information collected in this survey will be housed in the Office of Honors Research — not posted online.
If a student has difficulty finding a thesis chair, the hope is that we will have at least one or two faculty members with similar interests to recommend to the student. We would appreciate if you can take the survey and distribute it to your colleagues, so everyone has the chance to get involved in this program.
