Honors Ambassadors

The Honors Ambassadors (formerly Honors Initiative for Prospective Students, or HIPS) are a student volunteer organization that represents the Honors Program in a variety of ways. The group works to recruit prospective Honors students and participates in other outreach activities. The organization serves to promote the Honors Program by sharing their experiences in diverse program offerings with current high school students, their families, Honors alumni, and friends of Honors. Volunteers work alongside Honors faculty and staff in planning and organizing events that positively influence the development and shaping of the next generations of Honors students, as well as cultivating connections with Honors alumni and other interested parties. They may be reached by emailing HonorsAmbassadors@uconn.edu
