The mission of the Honors Program is to engage, challenge, and support academically motivated and diverse students from all disciplines. We enrich students’ learning through academic, cultural, professional, and community-building opportunities. We equip students with tools and resources to develop competencies and transferable skills.
The Honors Program features a framework that combines marketable skills with memorable experiences. The Dimensions of Honors Learning are interwoven throughout the six unique Honors Learning Experiences offered to students each semester. Students are empowered to customize their undergraduate experience by pursuing Honors opportunities that reflect their interests and aspirations.
All students, particularly exceptional learners, benefit from support that empowers them to think critically about what they are learning, to draw connections between areas of knowledge and interest, and to demonstrate their learning in productive ways. Honors students thrive when they dive deep into learning.
You are invited to explore our web site to learn more about the exceptional opportunities we provide, including academic enrichment, community involvement, and specialized support.
