Experience the Uncommon here.

Welcome to the University of Florida Honors Program!

I have had the privilege of working with UF Honors since 2005. Over the past 19 years as part of the Honors core faculty, I've witnessed significant growth in opportunities for honors students and have even launched a few of those opportunities myself.

As we continue to evolve as a program, our core values remain the same: Opportunity, Community, and Challenge. We take pride in these pillars - they guide our daily decision-making, the programming we offer to students, and our future direction as the premiere academic program for UF's top performing undergraduate student scholars. 

The goal of our program is to equip honors students with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to earn advanced opportunities post-graduation, while concurrently fostering an affinity towards lifelong learning. How do we make that happen? I like to call them our honors "power boosters" designed to add value to each honors student's experience, using our pillars as the guide:

  • Honors Signature Experiences designed to add interdisciplinary breadth
  • Tailored opportunities to gain disciplinary depth outside of the classroom
  • An unparalleled community of student and faculty scholars
  • Personalized support at all stages

I encourage you to visit our Honors Event Calendar, peruse our honors course descriptions, and check out the achievements of some of our accomplished honors students to learn even more about the University of Florida Honors Program.

Please don't hesitate to contact us.
