Integrating Moral Principles & Critical Thinking
Honors Scholars is a select group of students who seek a community of learners that tries to wrestle with the meaning of life and sees reading, listening, and discussion as the best avenue for achieving that purpose. The central focus of this nonresidential community is to struggle with the interaction between ethics and rationality in shaping our lives and society. Honors Scholars provides students with a wide array of learning opportunities not ordinarily available to undergraduate students in American universities. Book, film, theatre, and music discussions play a central role in the life of the community. In addition, there are multiple travel experiences to New York, Toronto, and Chicago for theatre and academic conferences. In addition to enhanced academic experiences, Honors Scholars benefit from a strong sense of community and close interaction with peers and faculty. Students in Honors Scholars work to create a supportive environment for the mental growth of members of the community.
One Honors Scholar won a national research contest in 2009 and was designated “National Undergraduate Research Scholar of the Year”
Eight Honors Scholars have recently published research articles in professional journals.
