The UIW Honors Program offers open-minded, highly motivated students meaningful opportunities for self-development through an advanced curriculum and co-curricular activities that encourage intellectual curiosity, scholarship, and professionalism. The program is committed to developing conscientious, compassionate citizen-leaders who are able to engage thoughtfully with the complexity of the world and contribute to the common good.
Participation in the unique opportunities of the Honors Program exposes you to new ideas and academic challenges, develops your critical thinking, and enhances your professional development. We now have the Carlos and Malú Alvarez Endowed Student Scholarship to offer incoming Honors freshmen as a financial support to participation in activities such as study abroad, unpaid internships, research fellowships and professional conferences.
The honors curriculum serves as the foundation for the program, but our Honors point system also encourages students to participate in research, creative work, and self-development activities.
