• Development of the Self as a Lifelong Learner

    Achieving University Honors requires that students develop their own abilities to learn outside of the classroom and beyond their undergraduate degrees (minimum 150 points, maximum 200 points). Students must provide evidence of attendance and submit an Honors Reflection. The number of points awarded depends on the nature of the engagement, the time committed, and the quality of the submitted reflection. Sustained engagement in a particular area (such as attending the same lecture series annually) earns extra points. All points awards are at the discretion of the Director of Honors.
