THC Constitution revised, ratified

The students of the Templeton Honors College have ratified the THC Constitution, a document which provides for the mandatory participation of all new honors students in committees related to the Honors Council.

The constitution received insufficient support in its original form and was revised by current council members. The requirement that each student serve four years on committees was changed to just four semesters, chosen at will from among each student’s time at Eastern. This would lower the necessary time burden for all students while maintaining full participation.

The constitution formalizes the committees and the Honors Council itself and sets up an electoral system and general structure for them. The committees are for examining and working on topics like curriculum, recruitment of new students and alumni. Next year, first-year THC students will be able to choose which committee they will sit upon.
