Faculty Fast Facts

Faculty are not able to give students overrides into Honors courses. Instead, redirect Honors students to their Honors advisor to get further help with course registration. Honors students seeking a seat in a full course can use the course overrides for Honors students form to submit an appeal.

Have a talented non-Honors student? Send them to our course overrides for non-Honors  students form to request an Honors course.

If a student is regularly missing class or struggling in your course, please reach out to the schedule and curriculum coordinator for guidance. We can alert the student’s Honors advisor and help connect the student with university resources to get them back on track.

Honors strategically reserves seats for its incoming first-year class each spring. If your course’s overall seat cap seems lower than usual in the spring, then it is likely because there are seats on reserve for this purpose. Any questions or concerns about classroom or seat issues in Honors courses can be directed to the schedule and curriculum coordinator.

Honors courses are often the perfect space to explore experiential learning strategies. Connect with the schedule and curriculum coordinator to learn more about how the Honors College can support Honors course activities, guest speakers, demonstrations, trainings and more! Review out course enrichment application for more details about how funding is awarded.

Honors is committed to offering unique interdisciplinary courses that explore timely issues. Connect with our schedule and curriculum coordinator or our associate dean Dr. Andrea Tanner to set up a meeting to discuss a course idea or simply submit your early thoughts on your course through the Honors College course proposal form.

Need assistance with developing your course? Consider applying for the SCHC course development grant to receive funding to support your new course.

All Honors students are required to complete an Honors thesis project to graduate with honors. Full-time faculty and instructors are eligible to serve as senior thesis directors. For more information, reach out to our senior thesis director Dr. Tracy Skipper.

The Honors College has generous funding to support undergraduate student research. If you need student researchers, then please connect with our research coordinator for help with promoting this opportunity to Honors students.

The Honors College rarely offers traditional summer courses; however, we do organize several study abroad courses each summer. If you are not available to teach with Honors during the year but would like to explore summer opportunities for a travel course, then connect with our study away coordinator and look over our study away opportunities.

The schedule and curriculum coordinator is available to meet with Honors faculty who have questions about Blackboard and how best to use university technologies in the Honors classroom.

There are also terrific university resources available through the Center for Teaching Excellence.

If you are having issues with your Honors classroom technology, please start by notifying the Division of Information Technology and then reaching out to the schedule and curriculum coordinator.

There are a number of ways to support the Honors College and its terrific students. We are always looking for faculty to help with our National Fellowships committees, Top Scholar mentors and during our busy spring recruitment time. You can also support Honors students by serving as a senior thesis director or a second reader!
