The Visiting Scholars program is a collaborative endeavor between the Honors College and other campus units to bring excellent interdisciplinary scholars to campus for enriching student events, including talks, workshops, projects, and installations.  Past scholars in the program have come from a wide variety of fields, including anthropology, literature, gender studies, visual art, sustainability engineering, the dramatic arts, and international policy.

The Honors College provides accommodations and partial support to accepted programming.  Proposing individuals, programs, or units:

  • Provide supplemental funds (travel expenses beyond Honors College support, honoraria, refreshments, or other expenses related to the events).
  • Take the lead in arranging the scholar’s visit, including arranging for reimbursement or payment of honorarium to the visiting scholar.
  • Plan one or more events for Honors College students to engage with the scholar (special workshop, reception, Q&A session, meal, etc.).
