UHP Mission, Values, and Objectives

Mission

Since 1981, the mission of the University Honors Program has been to serve highly motivated students from all five of Auburn Montgomery’s academic colleges by facilitating their participation in a diverse community that will prepare them intellectually and socially for the challenges and responsibilities of global citizenship in the twenty-first century.
