Faculty

The Honors College draws on the expertise of faculty from every college and department on campus. The resources of the entire faculty are necessary mentoring the exciting honors contracts and honors capstones, which are undertaken every semester. In addition to these contributions, some faculty (listed below) contribute even more of their time to the Honors College.
