This paper introduces the inaugural issue of Honors in Higher Education, which includes an impressive array of authors from many disciplinary backgrounds, writing for a broad audience of honors educators and administrators, about issues such as curriculum, research, and community service. Several fundamental themes weave throughout all the articles: What are current practices in honors, how do these accommodate – or fail to accommodate – the needs of honors students? How can current practices be informed and improved through assessment and innovation? How could novel practices in one honors program or college inform those at other institutions? Readers should find Honors in Higher Education to be a useful resource, with many examples of programs and ideas that can be replicated across institutions.
