The Honors Program at Minnesota State University, Mankato is committed to supporting motivated undergraduate students by providing them with exceptional learning opportunities, mentoring relationships, and a supportive community that fosters their personal, academic, and professional development.
Honors students are committed to developing in several competency areas such as leadership, research, and global citizenship. The program provides class experiences designed to support competency development and a variety of co-curricular activities to enrich their growth. Students demonstrate their emerging competencies through electronic portfolios in which they document their activities and engage in meaningful reflection about their learning. The Honors Program challenges students to move outside of their comfort zones and to think critically about the world and their personal contributions to the communities in which they live.
"I joined the Honors Program to challenge myself and have something interesting to do while I am in college. Additionally, I wanted to really develop research skills that would be useful for me later, especially when applying for graduate school."
-Brian Swancutt, Social Work/Pre Law '21, Honors Student Body Vice President
