Letter From The Dean

I am so proud to serve as the new Dean of The UA Honors College. My primary goal is to support our faculty, staff and students who represent a transdisciplinary community of scholars, innovators and leaders. Our vision is to become the national leader in Honors education, and I am thrilled to partner with you in this exciting venture.

The Honors College is home to a diverse community of scholars, including more than 7,000 exceptional students from across the country. Our mission is to inspire and support these high-performing and high-potential students as they become Critical and Creative Thinkers, Ethical and Empathetic Citizens, and Collaborative and Inclusive Leaders within their chosen fields of study and beyond. We support this mission to create a community of innovative scholars and engaged leaders through creative and collaborative scholarship, experiential learning and community engagement.

I cannot wait to see all that we will achieve together.
