Honors director, diversity advocate, book editor, journal reviewer, Virginia Woolf scholar, yoga and Pilates instructor—Lisa Coleman is a modern-day Renaissance woman. Recently retired as English Professor and Honors Director at Southeastern Oklahoma State University, Lisa has been a moving force in the National Collegiate Honors Council for two decades. Most NCHC members know her as the instigator and implementer of the Diversity Forums at the annual conferences for the past fifteen years or so. An active member and often chair of the Diversity Committee during that time, she has also been contributing co-editor to two monographs on diversity in honors education: Setting the Table for Diversity (2010) and Occupy Honors Education (2017), both published in the NCHC Monograph Series. She has, in addition, been an advocate for diversity as a member of the NCHC Board of Directors and has published scholarly articles in JNCHC and FYHC: First-Year Honors Composition.
