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.

Nishanth Alluri

"Honors provided me the unique opportunity to attain a cohesive natural and social science education. With the help of the Honors lecturers, I conducted a medical anthropology research project in West Africa analyzing the pharmaceutical properties of herbal medicines. Through the Honors experience, students are exposed to a wide array of topics, encouraged to conduct research, and supported by the Honors faculty. Honors has been an invaluable experience!"
