Program Administration

The Honors Program is administered by the Director and the Associate Director, who are advised by an Advisory Board composed of faculty appointed by the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. The Student Honors Board serves as a liaison between program administrators and students and also plans activities for the honors program community. The newly appointed Academic Advisor for Pre-Health and Honors Students, in addition to assisting the Director and Assistant Director, provides academic advisement to honors students and serves as a resource for information about post-baccalaureate scholarships and fellowships.
