We are thrilled to announce the addition of two new staff members to Honors.  Our mission is to help our students get the most out of their Honors education, and that takes informed advisors who are dedicated to meeting the unique needs of high achieving students.

So without further ado…

Kate HansonKate Hanson joins us as an Assistant Director of Scholarship and Fellowship Preparation. Kate will be our nationally competitive scholarship expert, and will provide support to students from across the University in all phases of their preparation and application to major scholarships and fellowships such as the Marshall, Rhodes, Fulbright and many others.  She’ll also help Honors students negotiate their way through the Honors requirements.  Read Kate’s bio here.


Karen HallKaren Hall is our new Assistant Director of Civic Engagement and Academic Advising.  Many of you know Karen from her experience teaching Honors courses, and you already know that she will be a wonderful addition to the team.  Karen will oversee the civic engagement component of the Honors curriculum, helping Honors students find meaningful ways to become involved and managing the documentation and approval of civic engagement hours. In addition to providing advising about Honors requirements, she is the person to go to if you need help preparing to apply to graduate school, including law school or medical school.  Read Karen’s bio here.


Welcome Karen and Kate!
