The mission of the University Honors Program is to challenge students to launch extraordinary lives. From convocation to commencement, we strive to foster a transformational community of critical thinkers, a community that is diverse, highly qualified, engaged, and motivated to lead. Your time at KU and in the Honors Program will be focused on academic engagement, innovative and interdisciplinary learning, and your personal call to answer the challenge of becoming an engaged citizen. Orientation was your first step on this journey: Welcome to KU!
