Bantivoglio Honors Concentration in the Honors College

The Honors College is the home of the Thomas N. Bantivoglio Honors Concentration. Open to talented students of every major and academic discipline, the Bantivoglio Honors Concentration fosters a diverse community of citizen scholars by cultivating curiosity and integrity both in and outside the classroom. The Honors’ undergraduate experience is personified by our motto, “think, thrive, share.” We develop socially and civic minded leaders active in participation and service within and beyond Honors, while our innovative and interdisciplinary curriculum alongside extra-curricular activities, fosters an understanding and appreciation of cultures and the arts. Valuing the whole student, the Bantivoglio Honors Concentration takes a holistic approach to education that cultivates health, wellness, and curiosity. Students, faculty, staff, and administration collaborate to provide a framework for leadership, community service, and civic engagement.

Our program features active learning opportunities, including: 

  • Unique and interdisciplinary class offerings
  • Enhanced and advanced discipline-specific class offerings
  • Guaranteed cluster housing
  • Educational extra-curricular activities, including joint student-faculty research, field trips and invited speakers
  • Extended academic advising and peer mentoring
  • Funding opportunities for study abroad and educational conferences

Honors fully supports, endorses, and upholds the University's commitment to Diversity. 

We commit to promoting and increasing diversity which is expressed in various forms, including race and ethnicity, gender and gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, language, culture, marital status, national origin, religion, age, (dis)ability status and political perspective. As the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) so often points out, diversity should be talked about as “inclusive excellence,” for only when a campus is truly inclusive can it make a claim to excellence.
