Proposing a new Honors-in-Discipline Program

There is definitely room for growth in terms of expanding Honors-in-Discipline offerings; the Honors College welcomes collaboration with faculty who want to design and implement new Honors-in-Discipline programs. If you and your colleagues are interested in proposing a new Honors-in-Discipline program, please contact the HID Director, Dr. Michael Whitelaw, at 439-7506 or who will be happy to meet with you to discuss HID programs and the program creation process.

When submitting a proposal, use the Honors-in-Discipline Program Proposal Cover Sheet, which summarizes program characteristics, and a full proposal according to our HID Proposal Guidelines. The main components of the proposal are:

  • Proposal cover sheet
  • Academic program of study
  • Student admission, retention and graduation requirements
  • Program coordination and student advisement
  • Recruitment and program enrichment activities
  • Additional resources needed

Proposals for Honors-in-Discipline programs require review and approval by the University Honors Advisory Committee. Final approval comes from the Academic Council. Proposals will be reviewed for compliance with Honors-in-Discipline program criteria. Honors-in-Discipline programs do not require Curriculum Committee approval although individual new courses must be approved by the typical curriculum process.
