Pillars of Excellence
University Honors is founded on three pillars of excellence. Everything we do in University Honors is based on these three pillars.
Cultivating a Culture of Contribution
Everything has an impact, no matter how small, and there will always be someone out there who needs what you have to give. So, ask yourself what matters most to you - whether it be advocating for others, donating your time, leading a cause, or simply offering a listening ear - and we’ll guide you in making the unique mark only you can leave on this planet.
Promoting Creativity & Innovation
Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken. We believe that no one else has your story, your experience, and your potential. We’re not here to produce cookie-cutter students. What does it mean to create and innovate in your world? We believe you’re here to create your own self and ideas and harness them to innovate. We’ll help you explore, revel, and dance in all those possibilities.
Celebrating Diversity & Global Citizenship
Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive and go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who come alive. So, get out of your comfort zone and seek authentic experiences, connect with others from around the world, and become aware that how you live is not the only way. Discover who you are and challenge yourself to consider what makes you come alive.
