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 students opportunities to lead. You can help us:

  • Plan new programs
  • Bring in speakers
  • Manage honors ambassadors
  • Spread the word about the honors experience

Advisory committee members will be expected to contribute ideas, give feedback, and offer hands-on help in preparing and executing programs and student-centered honors initiatives. Each member will play an active role in one of the following committees:

  • The Social Justice Committeewill assist in planning and executing social justice opportunities for honors students, namely the growing Pulse series. Founded in 2016 and named after the Pulse nightclub shootings, the Pulse series is student-driven and student-led and encourages students to engage with their campus and local community on social justice issues such as sustainability, race, sexual assault and health care reform. Applicants should demonstrate a passion and connection to social justice in their local community and among their peers.

  • The Service Committee will assist the Graduate Assistant for Programming to increase the service and community outreach initiatives of the Honors College. This includes developing new volunteer events for ambassadors and the entire Honors College that benefit the larger Northwest Arkansas community. Applicants should demonstrate leadership skills and experience in both planning and taking part in service.
