FACULTY

STAFF

     The Honors College at Virginia Tech will provide you with a flexible framework for personalized learning that emphasizes opportunity, expectation, and challenge. The opportunities are many, including close interaction with Virginia Tech’s best faculty, customized study abroad experiences, innovative undergraduate research programs, and access to a variety of scholarships and experiential learning grants. The expectation is that you will become an active member of the interdisciplinary community of scholars, uphold the highest standards of integrity, and employ your knowledge and skills for the betterment of society. The challenge is intellectual: to be open to new ideas, concepts, and theories, to critically assess them and draw on them in achieving intellectual independence.

 

 Universities are very special places that allow us to have the experiences and conversations that help us to frame our understandings and sense of responsibilities. In this regard, Honors is extra special. In this setting, you will have the chance to get away from conventional assumptions and expectations and to remake yourself. Your Honors experience will compel you to specify and sharpen your commitments, and to declare and test your convictions. Each of you will have a different experience as you sharpen and focus your powers of analysis, creativity, and rationality. By the time you graduate, you will be prepared for a lifetime of learning, to be productive professionals, and to give service to society.
