Description:

Honors at SIUE provides a distinctive, intimate experience of SIUE, providing the best of a large public university with the small classroom experience of a liberal arts college.  Honors is for highly motivated, academically successful students who want to be challenged and to grow. 

The SIUE Honors Program creates, for a diverse body of high-achieving and motivated students, an inclusive community of inquiry, reflection, self-development, and experimentation. We encourage students to take risks and help them learn from and harness their failures through an innovative and challenging curriculum composed of seminar- and pro-seminar-style classes that provide students opportunities to: explore themselves and the contemporary world; examine connections between diverse times, places, cultures, and forms of knowledge; take ownership of and responsibilities for enduring questions and pressing problems, and; practice service, reflection, and contemplation.

The program instills and develops an atmosphere of collegiality, respect for difference, comfort with uncertainty and ambiguity, life-long curiosity, and humility.

This session is designed to:

· Inform faculty about the curricular components of the new Honors Program

· Discuss pedagogical strategies appropriate for Honors courses

· Let faculty know about Honors teaching opportunities beginning in Fall 2018.
