The Honors Council is comprised of faculty members from each of the ten schools/colleges at the university, along with the Honors Program Director, Honors Program Coordinator, the Associate Provost of Undergraduate and Graduate Education, and the Dean of Student Success.
The Honors Council sets the policies and outcomes for the Honors Program. It oversees all program elements, including the review of project and thesis proposals, and participates in the selection of each year's new students, determines the requirements for successful completion of the program, and sets the guidelines and restrictions for items that are approved under the Honors Point Plan.
