• The Perceptions, Attitudes, and Behaviors of Students Toward Their Honors Program: A Study of the Temple University Honors Program

      Hantula, Donald; Temple University. Honors Program (Temple University. Libraries, 2020)
      Through an online survey and in-person interviews, I studied the attitudes and perceptions of Honors students at Temple University in Philadelphia to better understand how they interact with their Honors Program. A quantitative analysis of 152 survey responses found that involvement, especially in certain organizations, is highly correlated with how much a student feels as though they belong in the Honors Program. For the qualitative analysis, several major themes arose, such as barriers from the Honors staff, the atmosphere of the students, the lack of representation, and barriers to involvement. I created a list of nudges and interventions that can be implemented to combat these themes. Overall, this project has shown that the people with the solutions are often the ones closest to the problems.
