Mission

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, integrative curriculum composed of seminar-style classes that provide students opportunities to: explore big questions, fostering the spirit of inquiry; examine connections between diverse times, places, cultures, and forms of knowledge; take ownership of and responsibilities for pressing, contemporary problems by learning how to bring multiple perspectives to bear; become leaders comfortable confronting, discussing, and creatively responding to unsettling questions, 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.

Vision 

We aspire to be an Honors Program that: fully engages high-achieving students with an integrated and innovative set of curricular and co-curricular experiences, nurturing inquiry and excellence; is recognized nationally for its excellence and its innovative curriculum; that serves as a laboratory for pedagogy on our own campus, and; that lays the foundations for a public Honors College at SIUE.
