The Honors Experience
Founded in 1972, the Honors College is a hub for excellence in education, undergraduate research, and applied learning. Our interdisciplinary curriculum matches our diverse cohort of curious students with selective faculty mentors who ensure students have the tools to become collaborative, ethical leaders and thoughtful lifelong scholars. Honors College students have won Truman, Goldwater, Gates-Cambridge, and Fulbright fellowships and admission to top professional and graduate schools such as Harvard, Yale, and Columbia. In project-based classes and research-driven senior theses, Honors College students create knowledge by probing the most relevant, urgent questions of our time and enrich the intellectual life of our public university while helping to make it a force for the common good.
Honors Living-Learning Community (HLLC)
The HLLC is redefining the notion of “honors” by creating intergenerational and interdisciplinary learning communities comprised of students, faculty, and community partners focused on tackling some of the nation’s most pressing social issues. Building organically on their own knowledge and lived experiences, HLLC students learn to increase cross-cultural competence and approach local challenges that resonate globally from historical, philosophical, legal, and comparative perspectives. The curriculum provides the flexibility to focus, in and out of the classroom, on issues ranging from civil rights, race and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, religion, domestic and international violence, environmental justice, health inequities, and questions of democracy and citizenship.
