About Honors & Scholars


The mission of Honors & Scholars is to enrich each scholar’s experience by offering unique opportunities that support our core values of intellectual curiosity, critical awareness, social responsibility, and personal integrity. In collaboration with campus, community, and global partners, we combine carefully crafted honors coursework and specialized programming with high-impact practices such as living-learning communities, study abroad, research, internships, and service to prepare scholars to become lifelong learners and leaders in their respective communities.


Intellectual Curiosity
Our scholars are curious about their world, take an active role in their education, and seek to expand their knowledge.
Critical Awareness
Our scholars explore new ideas and ways of thinking, learn about global communities and reflect on their local ones, and debate ideas respectfully.
Social Responsibility
Our scholars confront ethical questions about the world and local community, learning to identify and tackle societal problems as they strive to become ethical leaders.
Personal Integrity
Our scholars demonstrate integrity in their interactions with each other, staff, faculty, administration, and the broader community.


Diversity and Inclusion

Honors & Scholars upholds the principles of diversity, equity, and justice as natural counterparts to a life of scholarly achievement. We welcome students from all backgrounds and endeavor to create an environment where students can be their authentic selves. In cultivating an environment that encourages diverse perspectives, we aim to develop a community of well-informed scholars who can navigate difference and lead with integrity.
