In what follows, I shall discuss six leadership roles that I think generally need to be fulfilled in an honors program. Since the leadership of most honors programs is the responsibility of a single person, the director, this can be thought of as a discussion of the various roles that my ideal honors director would play. Accordingly, the list also can be thought of as a general checklist of things that search committees should look for in candidates for a position as honors director.
