Leadership is one of the primary tenets of the Honors College experience. We urge every student to take advantage of many leadership opportunities. Make an impact on the community from your first to last semester on campus.
Honors Mentors work alongside first-year Honors students enrolled in the eight-week course, HONR 19901: “The Evolution of Ideas.” Mentors lead small teams in their HONR 19901 coursework and guide these students through the challenges of the first semester: transitioning to college; learning to think in interdisciplinary ways; and learning how to work in project teams.
Honors Ambassadors are student leaders who are dedicated to serving and representing the Purdue Honors College. Ambassadors interact and engage with prospective students to gain critical leadership skills, while also promoting the Honors College and its opportunities. They provide insight about the college as part of recruitment, high-school visits, campus tours, special events, community service projects, speaking engagements and more.
