    Mission Statement

    student showcasing work at Undergraduate Research DayOur 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.
