Honors Guides for Peer Success (GPS)

Honors Guides for Peer Success (GPS)

The Honors GPS Team collaborates with Honors staff to help students understand and complete Honors co-curricular graduation requirements. Honors GPS team members will guide peers in planning their events, leadership, and enrichment goals.  Honors GPS team members also provide Honors students feedback on their Honors progress. Honors GPS responsibilities include coaching students through their leadership experiences, providing feedback on student event reflections, and facilitating workshops for Honors students to further their development.  Honors GPS team members are also available for Honors student consultations on a variety of matters — they are always a friendly ear or someone to talk to.

Once you have attended a workshop, you will gain access to complete your Leadership Action Plan in HuskyCT. If you need to reschedule or cancel your registration to one of the events above, you can do so through Nexus. If you have any questions, please contact the Honors GPS Team.


    The Honors GPS Team often compiles helpful resources for students and can refer students to helpful resources available at UConn. For example check out their interactive handout that has helpful links related to course registration.
