Welcome to the Honors College

The Irvin D. Reid Honors College is city-based and service-oriented; we promote excellence and challenge our students to engage the world around them as problem-solvers and leaders. Our curriculum requires that students inform themselves about what it means to be citizens, of this city, this country, the world; we give our students tools, tools to be catalysts for innovation and improvement, and the skills necessary to create powerful solutions. The women and men who are students here — with the generous support and guidance of faculty, staff, friends and alumni — are inventing our shared future.

Erika Giroux

"Honors is a diverse community of scholarship, leadership, and service, a network that is comfortable yet challenging, and intensely academic yet united by friendships. Its foundations are deeply rooted in the drive to help its students not only achieve great things academically but also help the campus and city thrive through countless opportunities to learn from the past, appreciate and build upon the present, and innovate for the future. I have been extremely fortunate to build relationships with friends in all different majors and programs, an opportunity I never would have been able to experience without the Honors network. In short, the Honors College expands education to the best and fullest sense of the word: academic, social, cultural, and interpersonal consciousness and understanding."
