University Honors Program

Passionate People Changing the World

University Honors is committed to helping students maximize their educational opportunities at UC while discovering and pursuing their passions in life and using their gifts and talents to make meaningful contributions to society. We believe experiential learning and consistent reflection can help students leave their unique imprint on campus and in their communities.  

The University Honors Program comprises students in the top 7% of University of Cincinnati undergraduates, nearly 1500 in total across all nine colleges. We offer an inclusive community in which students are inspired to get involved from their very first semester on campus. Our students enhance their skills in leadership, research, creativity, global studies, and community engagement to then graduate among the most competitive professionals in the world.

To that end, we are invested in developing students into global citizen scholars who lead innovative efforts toward solving the world's complex problems.
