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.

Daniel Varghese - Honors Student Ambassador

Hello, my name is Daniel Varghese. I am a Sophomore currently studying Pre-Pharmacy in the HealthPro Start Program at the Irvin D. Reid Honors College. Honors is an excellent program that has enhanced myself as a student of Detroit. I had little knowledge about the history of Detroit when I stared as a freshman. Through HON 1000 and PS 1010, I was informed of Detroit’s diverse history, culture, and talents. Honors has also provided me with the opportunity of making life-long friends. The community at Honors is very inclusive and welcoming. If you are looking at a chance to pursue academic excellence, and want to be apart of a warm community, Honors at the Irvin D. Reid Honors College is the best place for you!
