This year, the Honors College marks its 40th year—a time to honor our past, celebrate our bright future and reflect on the impact UB Honors scholars have made on UB, our local community and the world.
Throughout the 2021-22 academic year, special events and activities are planned to reunite the Honors community. Please join us as we celebrate the Honors College and all those who have made it extraordinary.
A small-college experience within a large research university.
As one of the nation’s first Honors programs, the University Honors College continues to attract the best and brightest. Here, gifted scholars learn alongside UB’s distinguished faculty for an academic experience that is enriching and individualized. With opportunities to engage in rigorous coursework both in and out of their major—and to dive into experiential learning like research, internships and study abroad—Honors scholars are able to create their own academic path. And at the end of that specialized path, their career aspirations await.
Through an innovative curriculum and unique opportunities outside the classroom, the Honors College challenges academically gifted students to enrich their studies and explore their interests across the disciplines. By cultivating a small college setting that offers access to all the resources of a large research university, we foster leadership, independence, creativity, undergraduate research, global perspectives and civic engagement, and support students as they attain their personal and professional goals.
Our Honors scholars are part of a diverse community—a home where outstanding individuals inspire each other to be more. More curious. More accomplished. More than who they thought they could be. Support the Honors College and join us in celebrating this milestone by making a gift today.
