The University Honors Program values integrated, student-directed, and experiential learning that is personalized to meet students’ individual goals and interests. Our community of intellectually engaged students, faculty, and professional staff are committed to engagement in scholarship that will enable students to confront critical societal issues and make a difference at home and in the world. Students benefit from unique and enriched educational options that include stimulating courses, opportunities for research and creative endeavors, global experiences, service-learning, mentoring, and the development of competencies that will position them for lifelong learning and personal and professional success. Throughout their undergraduate experience, Honors students are guided and supported as they chart their unique educational plans through personalized developmental advising, engagement in diverse competency-based learning experiences, and participation in a set of networked communities that include Honors Living Learning Communities.
