McLennan Honors College Mission

  • To create a rich learning environment for students who are committed to excellence by offering courses, mentoring, campus support, and other educational pursuits with supportive faculty and in collaboration with equally committed students.
  • To provide opportunities for Honors Scholars to exercise their critical, analytical and creative talents, both independently and collaboratively, in pursuit of intellectual, social, cultural and aesthetic growth.
  • To create a community of scholars who develop leadership skills and engage with peers not only to gain a broader national and global perspective but also to exercise citizenship and demonstrate concern for social justice through local action.
