Quad for Non-Canvas Users

The Quad platform is the online hub for the American Honors nationwide program. It combines elements of community, academics and advising to give a student and honors advisor a unified view of the student’s honors experience. Quad also has facilities for hosting syllabi information, 4-year transfer preparation tools and 1:1 advising meetings.

Unfortunately, for our network schools who do not use Canvas, at this time Quad will not be able to directly integrate with your system. This means course information will not be available, however, you will still have access to any resources (such as the syllabi repository) contained within Quad and the American Honors Help Desk. 

For Students: 

Social Value

  • Students can create a personal profile (share academic info, photo, interests etc.)
  • Share, Comment & “Like” posts on Quad Stream (Similar to Facebook)
  • Notification System that keeps students up to date on what is going on in Quad

For Faculty: 

For faculty, Quad will soon contain a repository of American Honors syllabi. We also have professional development resources and technical guides available through the American Honors Help Desk that you are in now.  In the future, we plan to develop Quad into a robust hub for faculty engagement and professional development opportunities.
