Tri-C to Co-Host Mid-East Honors Association Conference
April gathering helps honors students connect with regional peers
Fifteen Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) students will connect with honors students, faculty and staff throughout the region at the Mid-East Honors Association (MEHA) conference on April 7, 8 and 9 in Cleveland.
MEHA represents honors programs at colleges and universities in a six-state region (Ohio, Indiana, Eastern Illinois, Northern Kentucky, Southern Michigan and West Virginia). The organization aims to create an intellectual, programmatic and administrative network of resources to help the region's honors programs grow and thrive.
MEHA's first in-person conference since 2019 will be co-hosted by Tri-C's Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Humanities Center and Cleveland State University's Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Honors College. The conference begins with an event at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, followed by urban excursions on Friday through four different neighborhoods: Downtown Cleveland, Ohio City, University Circle and the CSU Campus District.
"We're excited to show off Cleveland and showcase the different neighborhoods," said Matt Jordan, dean of the Mandel Humanities Center. "Participants can explore the city and see a variety of iconic destinations and landmarks to kick off the conference in a fun way."
More than 200 students and faculty from 28 colleges and universities will attend — the largest number in the conference's history.
"The highlight of every MEHA conference is the student presentations," Jordan said. "A hallmark of honors education is independent research, and this is a great opportunity for our students to share their work and get a broader perspective on what student-led undergraduate research can look like."
