Honors Faculty Liaisons

What's an Honors Faculty Liaison?

The Honors Liaison in your major department is responsible for being aware of Honors opportunities, particularly the range of ways that you can earn Honors credit. They should serve as an advocate for Honors students in their areas, helping other faculty to become familiar with proposal-based offerings, and stimulating interest in participation in Honors teaching.

Please introduce yourself--and introduce yourself to the chair of your department if no Honors Liaison is listed.
