Abstract

Glenville State College established a new honors program in the fall of 2000. The Presidential Scholars Program (PSP) was developed to reflect the Renaissance of Shared Values, a conceptual framework of values identified to guide Glenville State College in its mission to serve the State of West Virginia. Each of these values, Civility, Freedom, Tolerance, Responsibility, Excellence, Fairness, and Integrity, is taken as a focus for one semester in a variety of class activities: readings, discussions, field trips, and finally, a relevant service project. The continual goal is that the PSP student be able to articulate a personal definition of the value, internalize it, and carry out a service project that reflects commitment to the total Renaissance of Shared Values.
