Growth, learning, and aspiration...

The Campus Honors Program (CHP) offers special opportunities to a small number of undergraduate students. It fosters collaborative relationships between students and faculty through small, intensive classes. CHP sponsors two series of noncredit cocurricular events: the Scholar Adventurers Series and Krannert Dress Rehearsals (KDR).

The Campus Honors Program primarily admits approximately 125 incoming freshmen. Current freshmen also have the opportunity to apply to the program immediately after their first semester. Designated as "Chancellor's Scholars," CHP students may be enrolled in any undergraduate curriculum. Those who meet the requirements continue as Chancellor's Scholars throughout their undergraduate career. Required CHP coursework is concentrated in the freshman and sophomore years, when students take specialized versions of general education courses. At the junior and senior level, students are required to take one interdisciplinary seminar. In short the CHP is directed at students who desire an undergraduate education that is broad and general as well as specialized.

CHP courses provide an honors-quality way of satisfying general education requirements and of helping students to discover the interrelations between their own and other disciplines. In consultation with their departmental academic advisors, Chancellor's Scholars develop their own combination of regular and CHP courses. Accordingly, most of the courses our students take are regular University offerings.
