Faculty enrich the intellectual life of Honors students, both in and beyond the classroom.
The University Honors Program delights in bringing together students with the most creative and talented educators on campus who design and offer exciting courses and educational experiences for Honors students.
With opportunities that range from offering a one-of-a-kind interdisciplinary course in your area of expertise, to coordinating one of our theme-based Honors Living Learning Communities, to mentoring students’ research or creative endeavors, to designing and leading an Honors Dialogue of Civilization, or by providing mentorship to students as they compete for prestigious scholarships or graduate study, Honors offers faculty unique opportunities to have great and immediate impact.
For faculty, the Honors Program and its courses are an innovation playground. Honors students and staff are happy to pilot new pedagogical techniques. Whatever innovations faculty create through Honors can ultimately be brought back to their departments and colleges, as appropriate, to serve the broader population of Northeastern students. In this way, faculty members’ contributions to Honors education are truly contributions to the education of all Northeastern students.
Faculty also contribute to Honors education through service on two critical committees: The Honors Educational Advisory Committee and the Honors-College Collaboration Committee. Faculty participants in both committees are nominated by each of the Colleges. The Honors Educational Advisory committee also includes student representatives as well as a professional from the Center for Advancing Teaching and Learning through Research (CATLR). Both committees are deeply engaged in advancing novel approaches to Honors education at Northeastern.
