We proudly invite CHHS students to become a part of the next cohort of 2016-17 Honors Scholars!

The College of Health and Human Services’ Honors Scholars Program provides an elite group of students an enhanced educational experience through advanced study and interdisciplinary engagement with their peers, each of whom represent the various academic units within CHHS.

The students chosen for this program are given the opportunity to work alongside their peers to collaboratively address local, real-world health issues, through community-based projects that combine the value of assessments and evaluation. This integral capstone experience takes place over the course of two-semesters.

 All students within the college are invited to attend one of three informational sessions for this unique program, which is designed to build inter-professional collaboration skills and leadership.

The sessions will be held in McLane Hall 193 and dates are as follows:

  1. Monday, Feb. 8 at 4-5 p.m.
  2. Wednesday, Feb. 10 at 12-1 p.m.
  3. Friday, Feb. 12 at 12-1 p.m.

You are welcome to come learn about this exciting opportunity to be a part of the Honors program! Application information will be available at the meetings.

Honors Scholars work in groups and collaborate with local organizations to address health issues facing our community.

We are seeking motivated students with the following requirements:

  • Cumulative GPA of 3.5 (in last 60 units)
  • Majoring within CHHS
  • Will be a junior by fall 2016
  • Junior or senior standing with anticipated graduation date of May 2017
