University Honors Program

About Us

Developing your best self

You are a fantastic mixture of intelligence, passion, motivation, and widely varied interests.  The University Honors Program exists to help you develop the best version of yourself you can be.  We don't do busy work - we do powerful research collaboration between students and faculty, pursue creative ways to learn, and fully engage in the camps and greater Eau Claire community.

This amazing work wouldn't be possible without the incredible Honors faculty and staff or the Honors Council.  Both groups give outstanding direction to the University Honors Program.

Their focus is you

The faculty and staff members who choose to teach and work in the Honors Program are special. They care about your academic success both inside and outside of Honors, and they are eager to help you achieve your goals and dreams.

A council that cares

Behind every great Honors director, there's a great Honors Council. The Honors student and faculty members of the University Honors Council consult with and advise the director on the future of the Honors Program.
