Honors Learning Communities

As members of the Honors learning community, students establish connections with Honors faculty from their first term on campus, meet regularly with Honors advisors, and enjoy the enthusiasm and inspiration of like-minded peers.

Honors students can also benefit from living with students of similar academic commitment and abilities. The Honors Residence Floor is located on the fourth floor of UAA's East Hall.


Undergraduate Research and Scholarship

Available to all UAA students, the Honors College funds opportunities for hands-on, active learning that takes students beyond the classroom to engage in personalized projects and introduces them to partnerships with faculty. The Office of Undergraduate Research and Scholarship (OURS) administers eleven campus-wide awards programs to encourage inquiry, discovery and creativity across all disciplines.
