Assistant Professor Cognard-Black Published in Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council

By: Michael Bruckler, St. Mary’s College of Maryland

Assistant Professor of Sociology Andrew Cognard-Black has published the feature essay in the most recent issue of the Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council.  

Titled “Risky Honors,” the essay introduced the cover story for the issue focusing on the tension for honors students between intellectual risk-taking and the desire to avoid possible failure that sometimes comes from taking risks.

Cognard-Black currently is serving the second year of a three-year term on the NCHC Board of Directors. He also is an active member of the NCHC Publications Board, and this year he began a three-year term as co-chair of the NCHC Research Committee.  

A Fulbright scholar (University of Ljubljana, 2012) with interests in international and comparative research, Cognard-Black spent a portion of the spring 2020 term working on related research in the Netherlands, the nation where honors educational programming has witnessed by far the greatest growth outside of the United States.
