' Center for Honors, Scholars and Leadership


Established in 2005, the Center for Honors, Scholars and Leadership enriches the university campus through academic opportunity, scholarship, leadership, civic engagement and community service. The seven university programs that operate out of the center bring together diverse and active students who share a common goal of making the most of their college academic experience.
