Honors Program Mission

 

1.  Sponsoring committee:  Academic Affairs Committee

2.  Motion Presenter:  Michael Kalinowski

3.  Date of Faculty Senate discussion:  April 4, 2005

4.  Motion:

That the Faculty Senate approve that the University Honors Program embraces the values of Discovery, Engagement and Community, that are articulated in the Academic Plan of the University, and the University Honors Program affirms its commitment to provide academically ambitious, motivated, and able students with a coherent, challenging academic experience and a strong sense of intellectual community.  The Honors Program seeks students who actively commit to those ideals:  they demonstrate, and continue to demonstrate, excellence at the highest level; they embrace intellectual life with energy and a sense of adventure; and they share the desire to pursue their academic work in diverse venues, communities, and contexts.  Essential to the effort is a community characterized by active cultural exchange, one that values a range of backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives, and which is broadly representative with regards to race, ethnicity, gender, economic background, first-generation college students, geographical region, specific talents, etc.
