The mission of the Honors Program is to promote exceptional learning for exceptional learners by enriching students' learning experiences at Illinois State University. We do this by providing opportunities, resources, and support for Honors students to customize their learning in ways that are valuable to them in General Education and across all disciplines.
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.
