Welcome from the Honors College Faculty

We welcome all our Honors College students; it is our good fortune to teach and learn from all of our students at the University of Oklahoma. We look forward to getting to know you individually and supporting you during your journey through college. We believe the most fruitful and illuminating conversations come when we invite and encourage multiple perspectives in our learning environments.  We value students of all colors, all genders, all ages, all abilities, and all positions of faith and unbelief.  We value our LGBTQ+ students and their allies.  We value the perspectives of those whose ancestors have long been here as First Peoples, as well as those who have arrived from many parts of the world.  We encourage all our students to maintain the respectful rapport that is a hallmark of the Honors College, and to use your creativity, passion, and intelligence to meet the challenges of our day.
