Ow do your individual passions and interests align with one or more of the G.O.A.L.S. of the Honors & Scholars Center?
G.O.A.L.S.: Global Awareness, Original Inquiry, Academic Engagement, Leadership Development, and Service Engagement.
Honors & Scholars students will examine what it means to be global citizens by enrolling in coursework with an international focus; studying, researching, or interning abroad; or participating in internationally focused activities such as service, work, or student organizations. Students will cultivate and develop their appreciation for diversity and each individualas unique differences.
Honors & Scholars students will understand the research process by engaging in experiences ranging from in-class scholarly endeavors to creative inquiry projects to independent experiences with top researchers across campus and in the global community.
Honors & Scholars students will pursue academic excellence through rigorous curricular experiences beyond the university norm both in and out of the classroom. Students will be able to contextualize their formal education with respect to career and life options.
Honors & Scholars students will develop leadership skills that can be demonstrated in the classroom, in the community, in their co-curricular activities, and in their future roles in society. Students will be assisted by the Center with connecting to those leadership opportunities that best meet their interests and talents.
Honors & Scholars students will commit to service to the community. Students will be exposed to the many social issues prevalent in society by partaking in a variety of service opportunities offered through the Center and other departments on campus. Students will connect their service experiences to their specific major or area of interest whenever possible.
I attend Walsh Jesuit High School which is, a Catholic, college preparatory high school in the spirit of St. Ignatius Loyola, reaches beyond academic excellence to develop competence, conscience, and compassion within its graduates. As a Christ-centered community, we strive to be men and women for others.
