Rajini Srikanth
Dean, Honors College

An Honors College education allows students to explore local and global issues, solve problems through research, think creatively, connect with faculty experts and other passionate students, invest energy and thought in an issue, and make important contributions in the world. All honors students spread their wings in substantial, independent senior projects, which include senior theses, service-learning, and teaching opportunities. Many students present their senior projects at the annual undergraduate statewide research conference or to committees of faculty mentors.
