The Student Honors Council (SHC) is the student leadership branch of the University Honors Program and is comprised of three subgroups: Honors Service Corps, Honors Peer Mentor Program, and the Social Committee. Each subgroup has a student director, and these leaders meet together biweekly with the SHC staff advisor to discuss the efforts of their individual groups as well as coordinated activities across the groups.

Honors Service Corps
The Honors Service Corps is a group of students whose focus is service to the Honors Program. Members of the group volunteer at a variety of Honors-related events and interact with a range of people, from prospective students and families to current Honors students. Being a member of this organization means that you get to work closely with the Honors office, make great connections on and off campus, and build leadership and communication skills.

Honors Peer Mentor Program
The Honors Peer Mentor Program matches incoming honors students with upperclassman also in the honors program. Peer mentors provide guidance during the first months at UNH and act as a resource for mentees with questions regarding the honors program, student life, or anything else at UNH. The Honors Peer Mentor Program also works with community partners to provide community service both on campus and in the Durham community.
