The University Honors Program:
The mission of the CSUSB University Honors Program is to encourage and support Honors students' intellectual and personal growth throughout their undergraduate education. The University Honors Program works to achieve this mission by providing challenging coursework, enriching colloquium and seminars, a diverse range of cultural events, and rigorous senior research and scholarship experiences. The program is designed for self-motivated, academically prepared students seeking a university educational experience that is especially challenging and enriching. The Honors curriculum is built around the three guiding principles of the program: Academic Excellence, Community Engagement in a Diverse Society, and Personal Growth. These principles are reinforced across the academic and co-curricular experiences throughout students' undergraduate education. Students learn from some of the most talented professors at CSUSB in several courses devoted entirely to the Honors Program, in addition to completing courses in their major and in the General Education Program along with their fellow students outside of the Honors Program. Supported by the Honors Faculty, Honors students develop a strong commitment to community engagement at the local, regional, and global levels. Honors students also strive to demonstrate tolerance and respect for all people, and they take an active role in learning to better understand differences among people. Through a combination of academic, cultural, and interpersonal exploration, Honors students seek out and take advantage of opportunities for their own personal growth throughout their studies at CSUSB and beyond. The University Honors Program is a center of excellence on our campus, and is an ideal place within the supportive university environment for students to learn and grow.
