One of the keystones of our Honors College is our outstanding faculty. With more than 150 active faculty who teach both general Honors and departmental Honors courses, as well as guide independent research and artistry projects, Honors Learning-by-Contract, and Tutorials, MU’s Honors College provides a rich and robust collection of courses from some of the most engaging and innovative faculty in the U.S.
Our faculty have won numerous awards–national and international–for their teaching, are all “research active” in their own work, and many actively seek to include our undergraduates into their artistry and research. Our faculty do not confine their efforts to the classroom. Many lead international study abroad programs, domestic study away programs, and integrate unique experiences and travel into their on-campus courses as well.
Outstanding Honors College Faculty Award
Each year the College recognizes one (or more) faculty members who have made a substantial and lasting contribution to the academic and intellectual lives of our students. Nominees are solicited from students and other faculty and chosen by a selection committee based on the criteria of who best represents the mission and values of the Honors College through their teaching, outreach, collaboration, and engagement.
