Message from the Director

J Hause

The day I became Director of the Creighton Honors Program was among the most exciting in my life.  I had already been part of the Honors team for six years, and I had seen first-hand that honors education is undergraduate education at its finest: exciting, lively classes that explore topics deeply and from multiple perspectives, in which students feel encouraged and empowered to take charge of discussion.  What made me fall in love with Honors, however, was its dynamic and supportive community.  This community is alive and always changing with the ideas and contributions of each new class.  What never changes, however, is the support students receive.  Not only can they rely on professors, research supervisors, advisors, and mentors to provide opportunities and experiences in research, leadership, and service, but they can also depend on each other for the mutual encouragement that makes possible the amazing successes our students achieve at Creighton and beyond.  Creighton Honors students' experiences have been, and will be, transformed into deeds that set the world on fire.

--Dr. Jeffrey Hause
