Institutions of higher learning have been facing budget constrictions throughout the country, leading to consolidations and cutbacks. Administrators often have to make hard choices about what programs to eliminate or cut back, but one program that is not on the table at the University of North Georgia is our honors program. On the contrary, we are expanding and adapting honors to accommodate the changing nature of our institution; we want students at all levels to have the honors advantages of global opportunities, undergraduate research, civic engagement, and a sense of community.
