An EXCELLENT place to begin your search for a setting in which to perform service is:

The departmental office of your major department

Visit your major advisor or the secretary in the office of your major department. Ask of there is an opportunity for you to provide service for a faculty member or for the secretary in the department office. Explain that it is Honors scholarship service and that you can work for 20 hours over the semester. Determine who in the department will service as your supervisor, and set a weekly work schedule. Ask the supervisor to sign your HPEO Commitment Form.

This is an excellent way to begin a relationship with a faculty member in your department who may, in the future, be willing to include you in research projects or other scholarly activities.

Here are a few other campus sites that welcome Honors students doing HPEO Unit 1 service.
Feel free to contact the supervisor directly, or Mr. Clark can assist you in making contact with the supervisor.
