University Honors Program (UHP) is a university-wide undergraduate program intended to reward SIU's best students for their high academic achievements. We value community, diversity, leadership, service, lifelong learning, global awareness and research, and are committed to providing both experience and opportunity to foster those values.

The heart of the UHP is its small classes, unique in character and specially created for UHP students by outstanding UHP faculty to satisfy requirements of the University Core Curriculum as well as in the student's major. We provide a taste of the private college experience at a state university price.
