Welcome to Honors
The Renée Crown University Honors Program students begin with the First Year Experience, where they are paired with peers and a student mentor, engage in a semester of shared activities, and gain awareness of campus life. Honors students excel in attaining scholarships, awards, fellowships, recognition at professional conferences, publication, internships, and entrance to graduate school and service organizations.
At graduation, Honors students have completed a rigorous curriculum that represents breadth, collaborative capacity, global awareness, command of language, and depth. Each student completes a three-semester, independent thesis, and has contributed to community and campus civic engagement.
In the Honors Program we are dedicated to supporting our students in their research endeavors, study abroad, and their overall professional development. Through our generous donors and supporters, we have the privilege of extending these opportunities to students in the Renée Crown University Honors Program.
Honors can fund the following activities for Honors students:
- Professional Development Grant: Receive $1,000 to attend a conference, professional training, or activity that enhances career development.
