University honors course proposal deadline is Nov. 16

The University Honors Program is accepting course proposals from faculty for fall 2021 and spring 2022 UHON seminars. The theme for the year is “The State of Climate Emergency: The Earth and Us.”

The deadline to submit proposals is Nov. 16, with selections announced by Dec. 16.

Honors students are academic high achievers who take these seminars (capped at 15) to fulfill their University Core requirements.

Faculty from all academic disciplines are encouraged to apply with proposals that are innovative in concept and design, subject and pedagogy from the sciences, arts, humanities, social sciences and pre-professional programs. Experimental and interdisciplinary approaches that integrate theory and practice, the university and the community are particularly welcome.

The course proposal form and guidelines are on the program’s website. For more information, call 453-2824 or email honors@siu.edu. All proposals must use the University Honors proposal form.
