Honors Faculty Liaisons

Honors faculty liaisons are professors within Honors students' majors and minors that help navigate student coursework and their capstone project. Liaisons work with students, faculty, and the Honors College in the following ways:


  • Liaisons help students understand the expectations and procedures for Honors capstone projects within the students' majors and minors
  • Liaisons connect students with faculty who might be available to work on a capstone committee and may even make project topic suggestions
  • Liaisons support Honors students in their programs and help facilitate arrangements with independent studies and Honors options within the department


  • Liaisons serve as a resource for faculty with questions about the Honors curriculum and departmental guidelines for Honors capstone projects

Honors College

  • Liaisons encourage outstanding students in their programs who are not current members of the Honors College to consider joining
