What Our Students Say

One of our Honors students told us, “I feel surrounded by people who want to grow and learn, and that kind of environment is the best kind. I feel like I am part of something bigger than myself, which rocks!”

Info for Faculty

Honors courses are taught by some of AUM’s most effective and innovative faculty. We invite course proposals from AUM faculty members, and we invite recommendations from Honors students about faculty and topics for future seminars and colloquia.


More about the University Honors Program

The AUM University Honors program adds value to every major in each of AUM’s five colleges so that you can optimize your learning and your AUM college experience. Our honors students are a select group who comprise less than 3% of the university population. Is the Honors program for you?

AUM Food Pantry

The University Honors Program is very proud to be responsible for AUM’s Food Pantry. First opened in 2016, AUM’s Food Pantry was the idea of Honors alumna Sonni Gunnels and continues to be run by the AUM University Honors Program. We opened a second location in Warhawk Hall during the pandemic spring of 2020. We are thankful to the AUM community, our alumni, and other donors for their generous contributions, particularly during the pandemic.


Undergraduate Research Opportunities

Undergraduate research provides invaluable opportunities for you to deepen your understanding of your discipline or to prepare for graduate school.

Message from the Director

What is Honors?

According to the National Collegiate Honors Council (nchchonors.org), Honors education “provides opportunities for measurably broader, deeper, and more complex learning-centered and learner-directed experiences for its students than are available elsewhere in the institution.”
