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.

Danyoul Yamin

"The Honors College allows you to keep in touch not only with other students, but with the community and research as well. This is a close-knit group of individuals you won't find anywhere else. It's the connections you make as an Honors student that shape the type of person you will become in the future."
