Dear colleagues,

I am very excited to announce the upcoming name change of the Campuswide Honors Program to the Campuswide Honors Collegium, effective Fall Quarter 2019. This new name reflects recent growth and development of the program consistent with the UCI Strategic Plan. Building on a 30-year tradition of excellence, we have created additional curricular options and expanded staffing so that the campus can provide over 1,000 students with the Campuswide Honors experience.

The transformation of the Campuswide Honors Program to the Campuswide Honors Collegium will raise its profile and increase its visibility both locally and nationally. We anticipate new opportunities for engagement with the Orange County community and are excited about the increased potential for mentoring, internships, and support for our students.

It is through the tremendous efforts of our community supporters, alumni, faculty, and the highly dedicated Campuswide Honors staff that the campus’ strategic vision for elevating the student experience is being realized. Please join me in thanking this extraordinary community that has come together to make this possible.
