University Honors and Leadership Program (UHL) courses are interdisciplinary and are designed to encourage students to develop a complex and broad-based intellectual approach to the subject matter. Many UHL courses are team-taught by professors from different disciplines and aim to engage the students’ written, oral, and analytical skills in a multi-faceted approach to the subject matter. These seminar-style courses, with enrollments capped at 20 students, create a classroom environment in which active student participation is expected.

The UHL faculty are not only terrific teachers - many of them are also engaged in cutting-edge research in their fields and are regularly called upon to provide their expertise to serve the larger community in which they live and work.
