Message from the President

 I am so happy to welcome the 26th annual National Association of African American Honors Programs (NAAAHP) Conference to the city where it was established, on the campus of Morehouse College, which is coincidentally commemorating the sesquicentennial (150th) anniversary of its founding.

This year’s annual conference, Honors Mindset: Legacy of Social Justice, brings together over 300 of the best and brightest African American undergraduate scholars to participate in an array of scholarly activities from research presentations to a graduate and career fair. This year’s conference has even more significance as we engage in a historic partnership with the National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC) whose conference is being held simultaneously to our NAAAHP Conference in downtown Atlanta.

Such motivational speakers as litigator Bryan Stevenson and activist Ken Morris of the Frederick Douglass foundation, and many others will provide important insight on our theme, Honors Mindset: Legacy of Social Justice.  Visual artist Synthia Saint James has rendered a limited edition art print to commemorate our conference. We will be educated and entertained with our Awards Gala, featuring civil rights legends, to celebrate our heritage and culture in music, dance, and visual arts. 

This conference is a recollection and reflection of our historic past of excellence against the odds.  Yet, it is also a call to action for you, so gifted with talent and intellect, to emerge from this conference inspired, renewed, and committed to impactful leadership in your chosen profession and in the communities of the world.
