The Honors College at the University of Central Missouri (UCM) is designed to enrich the educational careers of highly motivated, creative, and dynamic undergraduate students on campus. The core mission of The Honors College is to support an inclusive environment that stimulates critical thinking, interdisciplinary problem-solving, intellectual curiosity, and a global perspective. These factors will ultimately cultivate a student and faculty community of forever learners. This charge is in direct congruence with UCM’s larger mission of “disseminating knowledge that transforms students into leaders who possess the aptitudes, skills, and confidence to succeed” and its core values of Community, Diversity, Excellence, Learning, Opportunity, and Service.
In conjunction with the National Collegiate Honors Council guidelines, our mission is accomplished through opportunities available only to Honors College students that are, “measurably broader, deeper, or more complex than comparable learning experiences typically found at institutions of higher education.” Such opportunities include: a unique living and learning community that offers hands-on and experiential activities for our students.
