Program Experience

The Chancellor’s Honors Program offers its students an honors experience that incorporates our program’s core values of intellectual curiosity, critical awareness, and social responsibility.

These core values translate into an interdisciplinary honors course curriculum combined with campus-wide academic engagement, service to the community, and exploration of global cultures. Additionally, students join an honors community through honors exclusive programming, living and learning communities, and resources such as honors advising and specialized grants that enrich the honors student’s experience.
