Message from the Director

As I wrap up my first year as the Director of the University Honors Program, I can’t but help reflect on how transformational this program is. We have an outstanding cohort of talented students who grow in unpredictable and magnificent ways. 
The University Honors Program is critical to KU's mission of attracting and retaining the best and brightest students at the University of Kansas. Personalized Honors advising, small courses, and engaging programming enables our students to tap into the best of what KU has to offer. 

In turn, our students demonstrate to the world how special it is to be a Jayhawk.  We look forward to telling you more about their accomplishments this semester, including As you read this newsletter, I hope you reflect on your KU Honors experience and will consider staying involved with University Honors in the years to come!

Bryan Young
Director, KU Honors Program
