The Honors Program.
Cambridge High School students got a taste of what lies ahead when Diane Chamber, Ph.D., professor of English and director of the Honors Program at Malone University accompanied "Malone on the Road" initiator Bill Quigley, D.Min. Drs. Chambers and Quigley spoke to six English classes in all – three of them Honors English classes.
They informed the classes about special initiatives the University employs to engage students in learning. Dr. Chambers shared R.S.V.P. catalogs (a project that allows visual arts and writing students to create new work inspired by each other) and additional unique opportunities at the liberal arts university including study abroad, service learning trips, world view forums, and 24-hour theater – where students write, produce and stage complete plays within a 24-hour period!
The pair addressed choices the students have already made, discussed major interests, and encouraged undecided majors not to be discouraged—many university freshmen begin college undecided as to their major.
The idea was presented by Malone University alumna, Sandra Morrison, who earned the master of arts degree in education and now teaches Language Arts classes at Cambridge High School. Morrison believes her students may benefit from meeting and interacting with college professors in addition to the traditional visits from admissions counselors, before making decisions about life after high school.
Dr. Chambers has been teaching English at Malone University since 1996, and serving as Honors Program director since 2001. Prior to that post, she was a graduate assistant and lecturer at The Ohio State University, and has also taught at the University of Minnesota, Duluth and in the public schools in Circle Pines, Minnesota. She has twice been named a Distinguished Faculty Award recipient at Malone – in 2005 for teaching and again in 2012 for service.
