Welcome to the University Honors Program at Southern Polytechnic State University.  The University Honors Program is designed to provide you, the student, with opportunities to develop as individuals and leaders during your academic journey at Southern Polytechnic State University.  Honors coursework asks you to engage in acts of ethical, global, and civic inquiry with professors and fellow students.  Such acts of inquiry require you to think critically and creatively as you solve problems related to technology, scientific discover, and design.  These thinking skills will also aid you outside of the classroom as you engage in experiential learning that will foster leadership skills necessary to serve communities on and off campus.
