Honors College: Community of Scholars

The Honors College is a community of inquiry, where students and faculty collaborate to ask and answer questions, produce knowledge, and tackle thorny problems. Honors College students’ past, present, and future academic endeavors demonstrate the success that comes from hard work and a genuine dedication to learning. The Honors College challenges each of our students to mark their own way while participating in a scholarly community that is part of the fabric of the broader UVM experience. To achieve this dual role, the Honors College makes available special programs, courses, and student activities, We also provide academic mentoring, and provide opportunities for leadership, community participation, and academic achievement. These opportunities include participation in Hall Council and the Student Advisory Group, where students take the lead in developing programs for the College and regular community service opportunities. The Honors College also oversees the office of Fellowships, Opportunities, and Undergraduate Research, which advises on undergraduate research opportunities, coordinates the annual UVM Student Research Conference, and gives access to advising on national fellowship and scholarship opportunities. By encouraging each student to realize his or her full potential, the Honors College paves the way for our students' continuing success, helping to ensure that they are fully prepared contribute to their next community after graduation.
