The Visiting Scholars Program is a unique opportunity for faculty, scholars, and professionals to share their insight and research with first-year college students. Visiting Scholars are invited to the Honors Scholars Community to share personal and professional passions in an interactive way. No two visits are the same. Scholars may give a lecture, host a dinner discussion, show a film, or play a game. Visiting Scholars are partners in creating an interactive out-of-the-classroom learning experience that is rewarding for students and scholars alike.
The Visiting Scholars program allows guests to give to the Creighton community by sharing knowledge, insight, and inspiration with first-year Honors students.
