Dear Honors Students,

As the 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. 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.

The hallmark of a university education is the cultivation of intentional learners who adapt to new settings, integrate knowledge quickly, and continue to learn throughout their lives. Such intentional learners are informed about their social and natural milieu, empowered by their analytical and critical thinking skills, and awakened to their responsibilities as citizens in a diverse democracy. The honors program provides an opportunity to deepen intentional learning in areas that the students are passionate about, encouraging personal growth, and potential for community impact. The UCCS Honors Program serves rigorously trained students who share a desire to learn. Students work with specifically selected and highly qualified faculty in smaller class settings, thus encouraging them to engage in a collaborative, vigorous intellectual life that prepares them for admission to and success in graduate and professional schools.

Students also have access to the Honors Lounge in Library 231, are afforded early registration and enhanced library check-out privileges, are given the opportunity to live on the Honors Floor in UCCS Housing, participate in the annual Honors Student Symposium and other Rocky Mountain Honors Council events, and are given special recognition in the UCCS Commencement Program and on UCCS transcripts. Welcome again to the honors program and we look forward to working with you! - Dr. Sudhanshu Semwal

Our Vision
Fostering the culture of intentional learners at UCCS, committed to service, personal growth, and a positive contribution to the local and global community with an understanding of Gray Matters, which is a distinct perspective, a mindset, that multiple and competitive complex views can exist at the same time, thus allowing us to appreciate diversity in both ideas and solutions.

Congratulations to our 2017 Graduates!
