Dean's Welcome


Welcome to the website for the Honors College and Trans-disciplinary Programs!

Since 1999, when we became the first Honors College sanctioned by the Georgia Board of Regents, our goal has been to transform lives – helping UWG’s best undergraduates metamorphose from high achieving students into productive scholars contributing to academic conversations taking place within their disciplines and making a positive difference in the communities where they study and live. Our award-winning Honors College staff strives daily to achieve this vision and fulfill our mission.

The UWG Honors College invites you to attend iDebate Rwanda vs. UWG Debate, an opportunity to hear from young Rwandan debaters as they share their story of recovery of Rwanda through the eyes of a post genocide generation. The event will be held on Thursday, October 9, at 7:00p.m. in the Campus Center Ballroom.

iDebate Rwanda brings together students from all walks of life to debate, finding solutions to some of the most pressing problems Rwanda faces. They learn to peacefully disagree while thinking critically and developing communication skills. The students will travel to more than 20 colleges and universities, sharing their story through debate. The University of West Georgia is the first university of the three month long tour.
