H-Options Instructions

Instructions for students:

  1. Review the Guidelines for H-Option Projects.
  2. Review some examples of successful H-Option Projects to collect ideas for your H-Option Project.   The examples are divided up into 100/200-level H-Option Projects and 300/400-level H-Option Projects.
  3. Meet with a professor with whom you are interested in working on an H-Option Project.  Share your project idea with your professor and solicit feedback.  Design a project together.
  4. Follow the Timeline for submitting your H-Option Form 1 (100/200-level OR 300/400-level) and H-Option Form 2 (100/200-level OR 300/400-level) to the University Honors Program office, Andersen Library, Room 2115.
  5. Meet with your professor at least twice more during the semester about the progress of your project: once at mid-semester and once when you turn in your H-Option project to your professor.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the University Honors Program at honors@uww.edu.

Instructions for faculty:

  1. If a student approaches you with a request to complete an H-Option Project, please consider the request a compliment (because it really is!) and say yes!
  2. In designing the H-Option Project with your student, you may wish to consult the Guidelines for H-Option Projects.
  3. You may also wish to review some examples of successful H-Option Projects to gather ideas for your student’s H-Option Project.  The examples are divided up into 100/200-level H-Option Projects and 300/400-level H-Option Projects.
  4. Meet with your student at least three times during the semester: one at the outset of the project, one in mid-semester, and one when the student turns in the H-Option Project.
  5. See the Timeline for the specific dues dates of H-Option Form 1 and H-Option Form 2.  While your student is responsible for getting these forms into the UHP on time, you may wish to gently prompt him/her.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the University Honors Program at honors@uww.edu.

Thanks so much for your willingness to work with an Honors student on an H-Option Project.  It’s true that the university as a whole benefits from a strong University Honors Program, but it’s also true that the program would not exist without the good will and generosity of our fabulous faculty.
