Other Teaching Opportunities
The Ogden Honors College is more than a collection of invigorating courses and student accolades: the College is a campus within a campus, and rich experiences outside of the classroom are integral to the education of the Honors student. Ogden Honors teaching occurs in many places: Honors professors interact with students in the Honors House residence hall, in research environments, on field trips, and at service projects.
Ogden Honors Research Series
Honors professors can share their research and interact with students an informal setting through our Honors Research Series. Faculty members deliver an hour-long research talks-- typically on topics that also touch on current issues, such as environmentalism or racial bias in law enforcement-- in the Honors House library. After these talks. Honors students engage faculty presenters in discussion and debate.
Undergraduate Research Mentorships
Mentoring Honors students one-on-one takes its clearest form in employing students as undergraduate research assistants. Professors in all colleges and departments can find potential research assistants in motivated and responsible Honors students. Professors teaching Honors seminars in their areas of research specialization routinely find in those seminars interested Honors students who are eager to become research assistants in the laboratory, field, or library, office, stage, or studio. Nearly all Honors students are recipients of scholarship awards that can pay for them to work alongside professors in their majors, and undergraduate research is an essential path to successfully completing the Honors curriculum: these research experiences and relationships lay the groundwork for a professor to serve as a student's Honors Thesis director, and ultimately for the student to graduate with College Honors.
Service and Fellowships
Serving as a mentor also takes the form of volunteering alongside students and other Honors faculty members in service projects such as our Freshman Service Project. In addition, Honors professors assist the Office of Fellowship Advising in recommending and preparing students for prestigious international scholarships.
These and many other opportunities for Honors faculty to participate in Honors service, research, and teaching are featured regularly on honors.lsu.edu and in our weekly email broadcast "This Week in Honors." To subscribe to this broadcast, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
