Giving Opportunities

The Honors Program is first and foremost an academic program, but we are proud to extend our reach beyond the classroom to advising, activities, and programs that build community to shape and enhance the cultural, intellectual, and active lives of our students. Therefore, the success of Honors Housing, Honors Faculty Fellows, and a wide variety of programming is key to maintaining the vibrant community that better helps students define and pursue their own intellectual journeys within one of the world's truly great universities. 

With today's dramatically increased competition in college admissions at elite institutions, we are challenged as never before to attract the best students to Michigan, offering them the best program possible - a program that includes small, faculty-taught courses,  engagement with faculty outside of class, and a residential component that brings intellectual excitement into the dorms. We need your help now more than ever if today's students are to have the same extraordinary intellectual opportunities that have characterized LSA Honors for the past sixty years.
