Honors Program Goals
- To nurture future leaders in our professional and academic communities, the program cultivates skills and habits of mind that enable students to become independent thinkers and learners.
- To guarantee that Honors graduates are capable of making positive contributions to their chosen fields by teaching them to synthesize the body of knowledge in that field and to formulate the questions that will break new ground.
- To increase the probability that Honors graduates will make a positive contribution not only to their field of study but to our communities as well, by bridging the distance between learning and doing, between theory and practice by providing students with opportunities for hands on experiences that apply their learning to “real world” situations.
