Our Mission

The UIC Honors College enhances opportunities for intellectual challenge and leadership by fostering a community of academic excellence, connecting outstanding undergraduate students with premier faculty mentors and promoting scholarly engagement. By bringing together exceptional undergraduate students, faculty and staff, the Honors College provides an environment for advanced intellectual growth and a foundation for life-long learning.

Following on the heels of completing the College’s successful Diversity Strategic Plan last year, the Honors Council is working to ensure that the College maintains its excellence and adapts to changing contexts. Read the Honors College Diversity Strategic Planning Document.
