Informational Meeting for the Honors College Think Tank in the 2023-24 school year

Posted by Tim on February 24, 2023 in Academics, Honors Experiences, Honors Program Announcements, Information Session, New Programs, Uncategorized

Dear Honors Scholars, 

What issues matter most to you? The climate crisis? Systemic racism? Inequality? Educational reform? The Prison-Industrial Complex? The War on Drugs? Civil liberties? Voter suppression? 

Whatever your concerns are, chances are there are other students who share them. 

If you are interested in doing interdisciplinary research with a team of fellow Honors scholars, consider coming to an organizing meeting for the Honors College Think Tank. 

Think Tanks are institutions that bring together people to examine problems in society and advocate policy prescriptions to fix them. 

On March 16th at 3:30 PM, we will hold a meeting in Capen 106C outlining the course:

  • students will take a 1-credit course in the fall to learn about think tanks, policy papers, and organize into working groups. 
  • This will be followed in the spring by the working groups researching their topic and creating policy papers under the guidance of a faculty advisor in a 3-credit mentored research collaboration. 

The finished projects will be presented at the end of April 2024. 

Students will also earn 4 Honors Experience credits for the year.  

This will be a student-driven initiative with students choosing and defining their topics and organizing their working groups. Working group leaders will be chosen by each team. 

If you’re interested, please RSVP → 

PS: Email if you’re interested but can’t make the meeting or if you have any questions.

What is SAMPLE?
Student Affairs Mentoring and Leadership Program Leadership Experience

SAMPLE is a program where students meet for 30-60 minutes once a month for sophomores and juniors (more frequently for seniors based on their need/desire to prepare for graduate school application deadlines of January 1, 2023).

SAMPLE students must apply on UBLinked:( and meet with Susan O’Rourke prior to starting SAMPLE but we have rolling admission into the program. SAMPLE is recommended for juniors to allow for ample time to explore the field of Higher Education Student Affairs and build out your resume in preparation for applying to graduate programs. But motivated seniors can take an accelerated approach to SAMPLE by working with their mentor and Susan O’Rourke during the fall semester.

SAMPLE Program Details:
– SAMPLE students will learn about the different functional areas of Student Affairs
– Discuss various graduate programs associated with Higher Education Student Affairs (HESA) and other career options like Social Work and School Counseling
– In SAMPLE we assist students in their graduate school exploration and application process
` – focus on funded HESA masters program and programs with graduate assistantships
– Connect students with mentors at UB in the field of Student Affairs
– SAMPLE students meet monthly with their mentor to discuss areas of interest in Student Affairs, preparing to apply for graduate school, writing your personal statements, asking for letters of reference, etc.
– SAMPLE students can participate in informational interviews with Student Affairs Professionals in their areas of interest
