At the core of the Honors College mission is cultivating an academic process of student interaction with faculty and peers. This process occurs in Honors courses of various settings and designs. The courses are taken within a curriculum that advances independent thought, clarity of expression, interdisciplinary knowledge, and original inquiry.
Themes extend and support the Honors curriculum. They are emphasized in stages throughout the Honors College career and are connected with student life and co-curricular activities. Commitment to service, global awareness, specialized focus, and effective research are promoted to expand and increase student development.
