Dreaming Big

The University Honors Program takes your future seriously. Our mission is to help you do your most as you develop intellectually, personally, and professionally. Throughout your time in the Honors Program, you’ll be invited to workshops where you can learn about prestigious national fellowships, make connections with outstanding honors alumni, and plan how to make the most out of your honors experience. In the Senior Seminar, HNRS 400, you’ll learn about everything from salary negotiation to how to speak with impact about your experiences in job interviews and grad school applications.

The Honors Network

The Honors Program is a place of connection. We're working to create an Honors alumni community to connect our current and future students with our amazing alums, the first of whom graduated from UW-Eau Claire in 1986.
