Message from the director:

Welcome to the Honors Program at UH Mānoa. We hope Honors will provide you an intellectual home, help you connect with a community of engaged learners and citizens, and challenge you grow as a scholar, a classmate, and a human being.

Over your time here, I encourage you to take the lead in your academic journey, try new things, and ask a lot of questions. Our Honors faculty are here as your resource--do see them during office hours (and not just if you are struggling in class!). Our advisors and office staff are here to help you navigate the program as well as to enrich your Honors experience--be sure to get to know them. Meeting with students is my favorite part of the job--make an appointment with me, or come to our different mixing events over the course of the school year.

This year, we are reviewing our program to see how we can improve it and develop it to make your Honors experience truly meaningful. We'd love to know what you think as you experience different aspects of it. Don't hesitate to let us know what is working (and what is not). This is YOUR program, and your involvement in it is critical to our overall success.

I hope to meet you soon!

- Dr. Vernadette Gonzalez
