Honors Program faculty
The Honors Program faculty is chosen on the basis of their firm commitment to teaching and research, their genuine interest in student concerns, and their outstanding scholarship. Many of them have made notable contributions to their fields of research. Several are recipients of the coveted Regents Award for Teaching Excellence - the highest honor that is bestowed upon one professor in each college annually.

Honors Program students
Intelligent. Inquisitive. Well-rounded. A desire to achieve. Such characteristics describe an Honors Program student. Honors students distinguish themselves and the program as campus leaders. They are regularly recognized by academic departments and colleges for their intellectual achievements.

Interdisciplinary approach to learning
The interdisciplinary approach to learning ranks among the significant characteristics of the Honors Program courses. The essence of the Honors Program is it commitment to combine our seminars with knowledge and experience gained form a variety of traditional academic disciplines.

Close student/faculty relations
One of the hallmarks of the Honors Program is its small class size and the resulting individual attention available to its students. Seminar faculty and guest lecturers are readily available to answer questions and to assist students in developing a full understanding of the course material. Members of the Honors Program faculty are chosen partly on the basis of their commitment to fostering productive, intellectually challenging contact with students.
