The goal of the University Honors Program (UHP) is to challenge students to develop as creative and independent thinkers. In conjunction with UHP, the University Honors Student Association (UHSA) works to engage students beyond academics and to help sustain the communal aspect of the Honors Program. All honors students are members of UHSA, and all are invited and encouraged to attend events sponsored by the group. By providing events designed to create a welcoming environment for honors students outside of the classroom, UHSA seeks to build an even stronger community of honors students.
Participation in UHSA provides you with the opportunity to:
- Meet other honors students
- Give back to the University and Twin Cities community
- Get involved with student leadership on campus
- Provide feedback about your experience with the honors program

The Honors Mentor Program provides an opportunity for incoming freshmen to learn from the advice and experiences of sophomore, junior, and senior honors students. Mentors and mentees attend social and academic events together and maintain correspondence throughout the fall semester.
