As the new Director of the UCCS Honors Program, I hope to continue the work and legacy of Dr. Michael Hackman – fostering the culture of intentional learners at UCCS committed to service, personal growth, and a positive contribution to the global community. Providing one-on-one faculty interaction with Honors students remains an emphasis of our program. Good ideas need our clear and personal voices. We require a course in public speaking which helps students succinctly and professionally express their views. Gray Matters, a cornerstone of our program, provides the unique perspective that opposite views can exist at the same time, thus allowing us to appreciate diversity in both ideas and solutions. Finally, the Honors senior thesis will provide an opportunity to deepen intentional learning in areas that the students are passionate about, encouraging personal growth and community impact.
Welcome to the UCCS Honors program!
