Discover and grow through LAS Honors
LAS Honors program
Empower. Enlighten. Engage.
Challenge yourself and deepen your knowledge, skills, and passions as a James Scholar.
The mission of the LAS Honors program is to empower students to be global citizens and global stewards, to enlighten them with deeper understanding of the diverse world in which they live, and to engage them with the core values and responsibilities of moving toward a sustainable future.
To be in LAS Honors means that you not only are an academic achiever but that you are an inquisitive and engaged person. You’re going deeper, making connections between subject areas, engaging in complex thinking, and connecting it with the world around you.
Students in the LAS Honors Program—referred to as James Scholars—deepen their knowledge, skills, and passions through unique growth and enrichment opportunities.
