A Welcome from the Director

Carlin_Larry_.jpg

Welcome to the website of the University Honors Program (UHP) at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. Here you will find information about the UHP and the wonderful opportunities it presents our students.

The UHP fosters a community in which high-achieving students experience the best educational practices. We offer an exciting curriculum with devoted instructors who teach small, interactive seminars and team-taught classes. Honors students engage in mentored research, have personalized advising, and they have the option to study abroad. Our students also interact with faculty through our many co-curricular events, and they can elect to live on the Honors floor of a residence hall. Through these and other high-impact practices, Honors students receive the benefits of a small liberal arts college in addition to the opportunities presented by a comprehensive university.

We are proud of our Honors graduates. They are from all four of our major colleges––Letters and Science, Nursing, Business, and Education and Human Services––and they are routinely hired by employers and accepted by excellent professional and graduate programs. And the educational practices of the UHP are enhanced by the interaction of current students with Honors alumni.

I invite you to navigate our website and see the many ways in which we carry out our dedication to student success. I invite you also to come visit the UHP at the heart of campus in the beautiful Oviatt House. If you have any questions about the Honors Program, please do not hesitate to contact us.
