The goals of the Honors Program are to provide enhanced opportunities for University honor students; to promote enhanced educational support activities for University honor students; and to promote campus events and activities aimed at developing, maintaining, and inviting an invigorating intellectual and cultural atmosphere.

The Honors Program Curriculum seeks, in each of its courses, for students to grow not only through disciplinary specific knowledge and skills, but also to develop key liberal arts and leadership goals, namely, for students to learn (1) to communicate effectively; (2) to think critically; (3) to manage information effectively; and (4) to demonstrate civic responsibility through leadership and service.
