The Honors Program at Eastern Washington University seeks to cultivate excellence in undergraduate education by providing enhanced educational opportunities to curious, thoughtful students and special teaching opportunities to outstanding faculty. The Honors Program is a model of inclusive excellence, engaging and motivating cohorts of students who reflect the full spectrum of diversity on our campus and in our community. Most of the coursework satisfies existing general education and major requirements and addresses the Honors Program learning outcomes related to social justice, leadership, civic responsibility, and academic skills over the course of each student’s academic career at EWU.
