The University Honors Program is more than just a curriculum. The Honors Program extends far beyond the classroom, and includes a plethora of student leadership groups, events, and volunteer opportunities.

Diversity and Inclusion

The University Honors Program strongly values both diversity and inclusion, and we seek to continuously improve the experiences of minoritized students in our program. In that pursuit, we have published our goals, progress, and university resources.
