Faculty Course Proposal

Page address:

Honors faculty members are selected for their excellent reputation as scholars, teachers, and mentors. They enjoy creating innovative educational experiences and are dedicated to student success in and out of the classroom.

Probationary and tenure-track faculty are invited to submit course proposals through our annual process. Fixed-term and adjunct faculty may submit course proposals after an invitation from the Honors Council and Director.

The Honors Program seeks both general education and advanced seminar courses that develop leadership, research, and global citizenship competencies. 

All honors course proposals will be submitted via the CDS system. Please review the instructions document below to learn more about how to submit a proposal for consideration and see samples of course syllabi. With questions or to schedule an appointment with the Director, e-mail or call 507-389-5191.
