    Changes to Honors 498: Independent Study Courses for 2014-2015

    *IMPORTANT*

    Please note the following important changes to Honors 498: Independent Study beginning Fall 2014:

    1. There are now five sections of Honors 498. To ensure that you are enrolling in the section that
    you wish, see the section number and course subtitle below. Also, in WINS, the subtitle of the
    course appears after you click on a section number (see the upper right-hand side).

    2. All sections of Honors 498 will employ a 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.

    3. Please avoid LATE ADDS because LATE ADDS present a logistical hardship for the College of
    Letters and Sciences Dean's Office and the Registrar's Office. Please enroll in the section of
    Honors 498 that you wish to ADD by September 10 for Fall 2014 and by January 26 for
    Spring 2015.

    4. The past practice in the University Honors Program has been to allow students to take a 498
    course whenever s/he wished and to have the credit for the course officially added to the semester
    that the student requested. This practice presented a logistical hardship for the UHP, the Dean's
    Office, and the Registrar's Office, so the UHP will no longer be employing this practice. Please
    enroll in the 498 section in the semester that you wish to take the course. (The past practice
    will be honored for students who participated in a 498 course prior to Fall 2014.)

    How to enroll in an Honors 498 course (or section): 1. Send an email with the following information to Miguel Aranda, the UHP Program Associate: 1. Your name; 2. Your student ID; 3. The section number and the course title that you wish to enroll in. On the subject line of the email to Miguel, please write Honors 498 or Honors 498 enrollment. Miguel will then notify you if and when the Consent of Instructor is granted; you would then go into your WINS account and enroll yourself into the section that you wish to enroll in.

    If you have any questions about the instructions above or the descriptions of the 498 sections below, please contact Miguel Aranda at ArandaM18@uww.edu or the University Honors Program at honors@uww.edu.

    New Honors 498 Opportunity for the 2014-2015 academic year

    In 2014-2015, the University Honors Program (UHP) is offering this one-credit course during both semesters so that UHP students have the opportunity to participate in Conversation on Race: A 50 Year Retrospective, the campus-wide commemoration of the 50-year anniversary of landmark Civil Rights legislation, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.  The opportunity to engage in this significant historical milestone will enrich your understanding of the varied and complex history of the United States and its connections to Americans' lives and conditions today.  Further, your experience in this one-credit course will supplement your experience in the 3-credit UW-System mandated U.S. Racial/Ethnic Diversity Course Requirement (formerly known as the Diversity Course Requirement).  Beyond your college years, multicultural knowledge and experiences will make you a more valuable candidate in today's workplace and a more informed contributor to the diverse communities in which you will likely reside after graduating from UWW.

    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.
