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 Special Events Committee will plan large events for the entire campus and larger community hosted by the Honors College. The committee will be in charge of choosing and inviting guest lecturers, artists, and musicians 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 Assistant for Programming in executing academic, social, service, and professional development programs for freshman and upperclassman honors students. This committee will be expected to contribute ideas, give feedback, and offer hands-on help in preparing and executing programs. Applicants should demonstrate creativity, interest or experience in programming, and an ability to work on a team.
  • The Service Committee will help increase the service of the Honors College. This includes developing new volunteer events for Ambassadors and the entire Honors College that benefit the larger Northwest Arkansas community. The committee will assist in planning and executing service opportunities for honors students. Applicants should demonstrate leadership skills and experience in both planning and taking part in service.
