Learn. Lead. Serve.



The University Honors Program (UHP) is a university-wide undergraduate program that models the intellectual excitement and individualized attention of a small college of liberal arts and sciences within a comprehensive research university. It is designed to reward SIU's best students for their high academic achievements and ambition to contribute to society. We mentor each student individually, empowering them to take charge of their education; form enduring relationships; and develop life-long habits of thinking independently and working collaboratively. Through our motto of Learn. Lead. Serve we work with the whole student, introducing them to academic, leadership, and service opportunities on our campus and beyond.
