The GCHC is an organization formed for the promotion and advancement of honors education in institutions of higher learning in the state of Georgia. Each year, the GCHC invites students to a conference to submit proposals for academic or creative work that addresses issues with humans and the world.

During the conference, UNG Honors students presented research on topics ranging from colloquial profanity to the use of media in Iran, the Ebola virus, hospital infections, solar roadways, Dostoyevsky, Plato and Facebook. 

UNG's Nora Sutton won second place in the competition for her paper "Fear, the Press, and Public Opinion: A Case Study of Lyndon Johnson's Vietnam and George W. Bush's Iraq." This marks the third year in a row that a UNG Honors student has received a Best Paper award at GCHC.
