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.

14th Annual Honors Convocation + UHP's 35th Anniversary!

by Russo, Julie A. last modified Sep 21, 2016 03:12 PM

The University Honors Program is going strong at thirty-five years old! We'll be gathering THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, at 5:00 in Sage 1216 to mark this milestone during the 14th Annual Honors Convocation. UHP news and upcoming activities for 2016-2017 will be announced, followed by a keynote address from our esteemed presenter, Dr. Roberta S. Maguire, Professor and Chair of the Department of English and Oshkosh Northwestern Endowed Professor of Liberal Arts. Her talk is entitled "Cultivating Curiosity: The Example of Albert Murray." Dr. Maguire is a longtime Honors instructor whose service as Director of the UHP spanned three terms (2003-2012). Her vision was instrumental in developing and shaping the Honors Core curriculum, creating an Honors Council, setting long-term goals for our students' success and retention, and much more. Indeed, it is she who launched many Honors traditions, including the Honors Convocation to which you're invited on September 29! Please plan to attend this special event; it is open to Honors students and their guests, Honors faculty and staff, Honors alumni, and all of our colleagues and partners across campus.

The University Honors Student Association has invited Dr. Erin Winterrowd as the next guest for Pizza with Professors, a longstanding UHP tradition. Dr. Winterrowd, a faculty member in the Department of Psychology since 2007, has also contributed significantly to the UHP both as an HNRS 175 instructor and as an Honors Thesis advisor (more times than anyone on the Honors staff can count!). Winterrowd's varied research interests include gender and cultural influences on human behavior (with particular attention to issues of suicide), under-represented groups in science and engineering, and mental health services within the University of Wisconsin System. Please join us for another stimulating Pizza with Professors event! We'll get started--and the pizza will be ready too--at 4:30. We hope to see you and your friends on Tuesday, April 12!
