Professors from all colleges and programs teach Honors students from every major on campus. That cadre of faculty shifts each semester as do the courses taught. Honors’ semester course listings indicate which professors are teaching.

A dedicated set of faculty and staff are on permanent assignment to provide a continuum of administrative leadership, advising, and support for Honors and its students.
