University Honors Program
Great Ideas Dinners
The Great Ideas Dinners, originally stemming from HNRS 2020: Critical Thinking About Great Ideas curriculum, are co-curricular opportunities for students to develop critical thinking skills, sharpen communication skills, and forge connections across curricular and co-curricular experiences.
Faculty members propose interesting table topics for discussion over a plated dinner.

Popular past topics include:
