    University Honors College Mission


    "If you want to go fast, go alone.
    If you want to go far, go together. " 
    - African Proverb


    One of the most important aspects of participating in the University Honors College is becoming part of the Honors culture at SDSU and getting to know other diverse, curious, and motivated students who share a commitment to academic excellence. The mission of the University Honors College is, however, about much more than aspiration and academic excellence.  It is also about providing a unique community of place and purpose and a gathering space for a diverse group of students who share a commitment to achievement, to giving back to the communities in which they live and work, and to deep engagement. Supporting an intentional community of diverse and  engaged students, the University Honors College fosters an atmosphere of creativity, interdisciplinary conversation, intellectual engagement, and collegiality.

    Teach For America

    University Honors provided the space, knowledge, and support necessary to critically examine the world around me. The thought-provoking Honors courses, led by some of the most talented and respected professors at SDSU, in combination with the strong community that exists among Honors students and staff laid the foundation for me to engage in the social justice work I pursue today, working as the Director of Finance and Strategy with Teach For America.
