University Honors Program

The University Honors Program offers a community of Honors students and faculty who are committed to academic excellence, creativity, critical thinking, and independent research.

The program provides an academically enriched and socially supportive environment that inspires students in all disciplines to become creative and critical thinkers as well as leaders in their fields.  Honors students receive the extra stimulation of a special program while participating in the life of the campus at large. The program fosters the intellectual curiosity of all students and provides rigorous preparation for those interested in pursuing advanced degrees in graduate or professional school.

All components of the program are designed to provide an atmosphere in which committed students may strive for excellence and further the process of self-discovery, which is the significant goal of a university education:

Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself. John Dewey

Honors Program students have priority registration privileges, priority consideration for on-campus student housing, and individual academic mentoring by the program coordinator. First year and transfer students who are eligible for the Honors Program qualify for the President's Honors Scholarship.
