Mission and Vision


UWG’s Honors College aspires to be the premier catalyst for student excellence.


The mission of the Honors College is to enable undergraduate students to realize their full potential through academic rigor and scholarship, leadership development, and community engagement. The Honors College’s commitment to excellence is exemplified by its high-quality undergraduate curriculum, supportive services, and opportunities for research, experiential learning, and community engagement in a caring, student-centered environment.

By emphasizing innovative pedagogy in the classroom along with co-curricular undergraduate scholarship and public service, the Honors College prepares its graduates to become community leaders with the wisdom to address global issues and positively contribute to society. The Honors College is dedicated to developing and nurturing collaborative relationships with campus and community partners for the purpose of transforming the lives of our students.
