Honors GPS Team

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.
