High Impact Educational Experiences

University Honors provides high-achieving students with opportunities to enhance, supplement, and maximize their experience at UCR, both inside and outside the classroom. University Honors encourages and supports all students in their pursuit of high-impact educational experiences, such as undergraduate research; academic internships; national, prestigious scholarships and awards; and honors societies. Students are encouraged to build their resumes early with research experience, leadership roles, community service, employment, internships, publications, conferences, and volunteer work. Each of those experiences will help students to differentiate themselves from other students when pursuing various opportunities.
