• Contributions to Community

    Achieving University Honors requires that students contribute to their community or communities (minimum 150 points, maximum 200 points). Students must provide evidence of attendance and reflective engagement, and no points can be awarded until a reflective piece is submitted. The number of points awarded depends on the nature of the engagement, the time committed, and the quality of the submitted reflection. All points awards are at the discretion of the Director of Honors.
