Welcome to the Honors Program

The University of Connecticut Honors Program is one of several Enrichment Programs available to UConn undergraduates. Honors was instituted nearly sixty years ago and has awarded Honors designations to almost 9000 UConn graduates. Approximately 2,300 students are currently enrolled in this vibrant community across all UConn's campuses in majors spanning all undergraduate schools and colleges. Led by Director Jennifer Lease Butts, guided by the Honors Board of Associate Directors, and supported by a dedicated staff, the Honors Program follows the principles set forth in its Board-approved theoretical framework. Engagement in the Honors Program offers undergraduates an enriched Honors experience through exploration, creativity, and leadership in academics and beyond the classroom.
