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.

Mariela Sanchez

"Honors has taught me so much in the short time that I have been a student here. The various community service events that I have been a part of through Honors 1000 have given me a sense of community. Being surrounded by my peers who strive to achieve such excellence, both in and outside of school, has been a true motivation for me to do well and work hard to achieve my goals. With everything that I have already experienced through Honors, from the community service to having a strong relationship with my Honors professor and learning about the great city of Detroit, I am eager to see what's next!"
