What is an Honors Education?

As defined by the National Collegiate Honors Council, an "honors education is characterized by in-class and extracurricular activities that are measurably broader, deeper, or more complex than comparable learning experiences typically found at institutions of higher education. Honors experiences include a distinctive learner-directed environment and philosophy, provide opportunities that are appropriately tailored to fit the institution's culture and mission, and frequently occur within a close community of students and faculty."

The Vision and Mission of The Honors College at Oklahoma State University shall be informed by the following Core Values:

  • Academic Excellence
  • Appreciation of Diversity (in its broadest sense)
  • Educational Innovation
  • Community Engagement
  • A Global Perspective
  • Personal and Professional Integrity

"The first duty of a university is to teach wisdom, not trade; character, not technicalities." - Sir Winston Churchill
