Contribute to our future
The Judy Genshaft Honors College offers students an extraordinary undergraduate experience
through thought-provoking coursework, engaging activities, and academic advising that
meets students where they are and guides them through rewarding experiences that result
in a student's ability to tell a story about who they are and what they have to offer
Our values show up in the way we work together, interact with students, and offer
support to our colleagues within the College and around campus.
