SAC Honors Academy Program

About the Honors Academy Program

English Professor Gilliam “Mike” Burton was the first coordinator of the San Antonio College Presidential Honors  Program – later renamed the Raul S, Murguia Presidential Honors Program – and held that position from 1989 to 2011.  The foundation of the Program owes much to Professor Burton’s 10YR_HonorsLogoFinal1.png leadership. Graduates of the Program under his supervision were accepted to upper-division and graduate institutions such as Amherst College, Boston College, Boston University, Columbia, Cornell, U.C. at Berkeley, SMU, Notre Dame, the College of Santa Fe, NYU, Stanford University, The University of Central Oklahoma, The University of Turabo in Puerto Rico, and most public and private Texas universities. Many of these graduates have acknowledged their indebtedness to the Honors Program, especially Professor Burton. 

In 2011, under the supervision of History Professor Dr. Jon Lee the Program was renamed the Honors Academy Program. Dr. Lee held that position until 2016. Psychology Professor Dehlia Wallis served as coordinator from 2016-2018. Professor Wallis and History Professor Dr. Erik Anderson served as co-coordinators from 2018-2019. English Professor Laurie Lopez Coleman serves as the current Director of the Program.

The SAC Honors Academy Program offers college courses in core subjects that every student will need for a bachelor's degree in Texas. Dedicated professors and an embedded advisor work one-on-one with students and guide them through academic, transfer, and career goals. Honors Academy Program students receive a first-rate college experience during their first two years at a fraction of the cost of a four-year college or university.

 "My journey to the Honors Academy was non-traditional. I had received my GED from Restore Education and was going to SAC part-time. Despite being very silent, one day I engaged in a conversation about a topic in class with my peers. It was recommended by one of my peers that I should reach out to the Honors Academy and join. Despite many self-doubts, I got accepted into the Honors Academy and it has changed my life for the better. I was able to meet like-minded individuals, many of whom I still keep in touch to this day. Christian Villarreal.jpg

I was able to be academically challenged and pushed thanks to Professors like
Dr. Lee. I was also able to receive mentorship support from leaders like Professor Wallis. After graduating from SAC, I graduated from TAMU-SA with a Bachelor's in English. 

Then I was accepted into the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program at UTSA. Later I was blessed with the privilege of serving as the Academic Program Specialist for the Writing Success Center at San Antonio College. I'm currently still serving my role as an Academic Program Specialist whilst completing prerequisites for nursing school. I hope to be able to give back to my community and create an impact in people's lives by serving as an RN."

Alumni Voices

"The Honors Academy is full of friendly professors who instill confidence in their students and staff who are knowledgeable and helpful. A major perk is the Honors Center that provides a comfortable environment where we can study and relax before, after, or in between classes and meet other students. It is a convenient place to meet professors during office hours. My favorite part of the center is having access to a kitchen that makes staying on campus all day much more tolerable." – Samantha

“The Honors Academy classes are more engaging and the professors are more understanding and helpful. The fact that we also have an Honors Academy Lounge area on campus makes it easier to ask for help and meet like-minded peers.”-- Okhai

“The Honors Academy has been the best part of my academic and personal experience at SAC. I have taken classes with the most passionate, dedicated, and caring professors who creatively teach the course curriculum while promoting experiential learning and projects that build marketable skills. The program provides excellent one-on-one advising. My advisor helped me navigate my career options and degree plan that fit my life goals. She updated me on important events and registration deadlines. Workshops, field trips, and other activities also give us the opportunity to establish meaningful relationships. I am proud and grateful to be a part of the Honors Academy at SAC.”-- Carmen

Honors Academy Recognition Ceremony 2019  

Experiential Learning (EL)

Experiential Learning (EL) is hands-on learning that involves a real-world-problem-solving process. EL encourages students to synthesize and analyze information through critical thinking as a result of teamwork, communication and research. Students encounter concrete experiences and develop methods or solutions to difficult problems and/or controversies. Students complete a set number of hours, document participation, and provide a reflection of their experiences in the Student Honors Portfolio. EL hours must be completed to earn Silver or Gold levels of distinction.

Designated Activities

Designated Activities are hosted by the Honors Academy and held in the Center. These activities promote our goal to build our Academy community. Transfer / scholarship / financial aid workshops, health and wellness presentations, and guest speakers will be offered throughout the semester to support student success. In addition, volunteer opportunities are arranged to elevate student experiences. Most of these activities are scheduled on Wednesdays during the Boost sessions from 2:00-3:00 pm. For Silver and Gold levels of distinction, students must attend a specific number of designated activities. 

Student Honors Portfolio

Our program uses eLumen ePortfolio for students to electronically collect their work over time, reflect upon their personal and academic growth and share selected content with others, such as professors, advisors, and potential employers. To complete the Program at the Bronze, Silver, or Gold levels of distinction, students must maintain a Student Honors Portfolio.

Honors Assignments

Each Honors Academy faculty designs a specific Honors assignment that aligns to the Honors Student Learning Outcomes. Faculty create a task or combination of tasks for specific content that is measurably broader, deeper, and more complex than what would typically be covered in their course. The Honors Assignment is not an extra assignment in the Honors course but a learning-centered and learner-directed experience for students. The Honors Assignment is reviewed by our Curriculum Committee and Assessment Validation Committee for alignment to our Honors Student Learning Outcomes. Students who wish to complete the Honors Academy Program with Gold Distinction will be required to choose one Honors Assignment to present at the Honors Academy Capstone Presentation in their final semester. The Capstone Presentation Coach contacts students regarding their presentation at the beginning of their final semester. 

Capstone Presentation

If the student is working toward Gold level of distinction, they must complete a Capstone Presentation. During one of the last two semesters before graduation a student will select, develop, and prepare an oral presentation on an Honors assignment from a course taken while in the Honors Academy. The student will deliver the presentation to a group of faculty on a scheduled date during Week 12 or Week 15 of the semester.

Writing-Intensive Courses

Faculty develop their course curriculum to incorporate writing practice. Writing activities give students opportunities to both improve their compositional skills and deepen their learning through frequent writing assignments. Meaningful and timely faculty feedback support students’ writing development.

Common Reads

Faculty teaching the English courses select a common read non-fiction text in ENGL 1301 and a fiction text for ENGL 1302.  

In fall 2023, our ENGL 1301 students will participate in this year's Library Common Read The Moth Presents All These Wonders:True Stories about Facing the Unknown.

Previous Honors Academy common reads were the following: Tell Me Who You Are, The War for Kindness, The Moth Presents Occasional Magic: True Stories About Defying the Impossible; Hot, Flat and Crowded; Between the World and Me; The Case Against Sugar; World without Mind; A Place to Stand; The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks; Merchants of Doubt; The Far Away Brothers, and The Handmaid's Tale.

Leadership Development

Through the Student Organization for the Honors Academy Program (SOHAP), students can serve as any of the five officer positions. Students have an opportunity to exercise leadership, effective communication and interpersonal skills essential to their professional growth.

Undergraduate Research
According to the American Association for Colleges and Universities (AAC&U), the "goal of undergraduate research is to involve students with actively contested questions, empirical observation, cutting-edge technologies, and the sense of excitement that comes from working to answer important questions." Faculty in our Program embed research opportunities in their courses, most notably within their Honors Assignments that become the students' Capstone Presentations.
Beginning in Spring 2024 through collaboration across the Alamo Colleges and with our 4-year partner institutions, SAC Honors Academy Students can participate in the San Antonio Honors Student Research Symposium. Students work with an Honors faculty mentor to develop their Honors Assignment into a research proposal for the Symposium. 

Scholarships are awarded in the amount of $500 for the following categories: 

Best Overall 
Best Poster
Best Oral Presentation
Best 2-Year Community College Submission

Service Learning/Community-Based Learning

We coordinate with on and off-campus partners to arrange direct community service experiences for our students. These opportunities expose students to issues they are studying in the curriculum and with agencies doing meaningful work in the community. Some opportunities may include job placement within these agencies. Students develop a commitment to giving back to the community as an important preparation for citizenship, career and life.

Guest Speakers

Local and national authors / educators are brought into the Center for presentations as extended opportunities for thought and discussion of important issues.

Off-Campus Excursions

Periodically, faculty will arrange for group outings to local landmarks, such as the San Antonio Museum of Art, the Witte Museum or the Missions National Historical Park. In addition, local university group tours are organized for interested students preparing for transfer.

Learning Communities

Collaborative partnerships through two or more linked classes are led by faculty to encourage integration of the curriculum across multiple disciplines. Faculty partners establish academic and social support networks while exploring a common topic and / or common readings through discipline-specific integrated assignments.

Why considering EQUITY in our Program is important

Our Program takes into consideration the AAC&U recommendations on Equity-Mindedness:

“Equity-minded practices are created through a
1. willingness to look at student outcomes and disparities at all educational levels disaggregated by race and ethnicity as well as socioeconomic status.
2. recognition that individual students are not responsible for the unequal outcomes of groups that have historically experienced discrimination and marginalization in the United States.
3. respect for the aspirations and struggles of students who are not well served by the current educational system.
4. belief in the fairness of allocating additional college and community resources to students who have greater needs due to the systemic shortcomings of our educational system in providing for them.
5. recognition that the elimination of entrenched biases, stereotypes, and discrimination in institutions of higher education requires intentional critical deconstruction of structures, policies, practices, norms, and values assumed to be race neutral.”
