- Multicultural Events (formerly called Conversations on Race) will be offered in both Fall and Spring semesters. It will combine independent attendance at multicultural events on campus AND participation in several breakfast meetings on Tuesday mornings from 8 to 8:50 throughout the semester. You will attend four (4) multicultural enrichment events on campus of your choosing (a list of approved events will be provided). You will then report back on your experience when we meet for breakfast several times throughout the semester. This course will allow you to learn about other cultures AND to make friends with other students in the Honors Program through a breakfast club. Instructor: Elizabeth Kim, Honors Director.
- The Honors Common Read (1 cr and S/NC) will be placed on the Spring 2016 Timetable and be offered the first five weeks of Spring 2016. Instructor: Josh Mabie, Languages and Literatures.

Grading: All sections of Honors 498 now employ an S/NC grading basis only. When you enroll in the course, be sure to choose S/NC for the grading basis. No letter grades (A, B, C, etc.) will be given for Honors 498 coursework.
Repeatable courses: Both Multicultural Events and The Honors Common Read are repeatable because new events and a new book will be featured each year. You may also repeat Find Your Inner Warhawk if you take the course with different instructors. You may take up to six (6) Honors credits by way of Honors 498 courses.
How to enroll in an Honors 498 course (or section): Beginning in Fall 2015, Honors students may enroll directly in Honors 498 courses (as they would for any other course). See the Fall 2015 Schedule of Classes for specific meeting times and place.

Our mission as an Honors Program is to challenge basic perceptions of what a student is, stimulating intellectual growth beyond the classroom, encouraging more engagement in academics, and developing an awareness of oneself as a learner. We aim to provide a competitive advantage for students as they enter the workforce by promoting quality student work through active learning, incubating innovation, and creating positive experiences that teach strong life-lessons. Our program maintains a drive to impart global awareness and citizenship, and supports an interdisciplinary pedagogy to foster the connections between the Colleges. As the students progress through the program, we strive to build relationships and a sense of community among the students. This program looks to help students achieve success beyond expectations; as well as encourage students to try new experiences, participate in reflective assessment, and think with an open mind. With a strong work ethic and operating in a fun atmosphere, our students will further their own education so as to be the best students that the University has to offer.
