Honors College Student Advisory Council

Want to make an impact on the Honors College?

The Honors College Advisory Council offers a select group of honors student leaders an opportunity to plan new programs, bring in speakers, manage honors ambassadors, and spread the word about the honors experience. Each member will play an active role in one of the following committees:

  • The Honors College Invites Committee will plan large events hosted by the Honors College. The committee will be in charge of choosing and inviting creative thinkers and doers to our campus. These students will manage a large budget and work closely with several departments on campus. Applicants should demonstrate ability to manage a budget, to plan large events, and to work well with a diverse group of people.

  • The Programming Committee will assist the graduate assistants for programming in planning and implementing academic, social, service and professional development programs for all honors students. This committee will be expected to contribute ideas, give feedback, and offer hands-on help in preparing and presenting programs. Applicants should demonstrate creativity, interest or experience in programming, and an ability to work on a team.

  • The Media Committee will work to develop innovative ways to advertise Honors College events to current students through print, social media and the Honors College blog. This committee will also assist in selecting photos and artwork for student areas of Ozark Hall. Applicants should demonstrate a good eye for design, excellent writing skills, and innovative approaches to communications.

  • The Service Committee will help manage the Ambassadors Program. This committee will develop new events for Ambassadors, lead Ambassadors and Honors College events, and select Ambassador Award winners. Applicants should demonstrate leadership skills and interest or experience in service.
