Honors Council

A Community of Faculty, Staff, and Students

The University of Washington Honors Council is a small group of faculty, program staff, and appointed students charged with the responsibility of representing the Honors Program. The Council meets quarterly to assess the quality of programs leading to the honors degree and advise the Director of the Honors Program on matters pertaining to policy and changes in curricular and programmatic structure. The Director of the Honors Program also serves as chair of the Council.
