Honors Faculty Liaisons

Honors faculty liaisons serve as a nexus between the Honors College and academic departments and units on campus. Liaisons help integrate the goals and expectations of the Honors College with the academic curriculum and culture of each department. Liaisons work with students, faculty, and the Honors College in the following ways:

Students

  • Liaisons help students understand the expectations and procedures for Honors capstone projects within the department
  • Liaisons connect students with faculty who might be available to work on a project 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

Faculty

  • 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 as Track II or III students
