Naming of the Honors College

A name can be representative of the past, the present and the future. It can evoke thought, emotion or passion. It can serve as a catalyst for change, a call to action or drive inspiration and innovation. 

Unlike the traditional disciplines, there are no national rankings or metrics used to recognize the reputations or identify programs of distinction in honors education. The characteristic that communicates excellence and prestige in this field is the naming of a program. Named honors colleges, schools and programs carry the banner of excellence, distinction and prestige. They are considered among the most prominent and sought-after institutions for honors education. 

A gift to name the Honors College will align with the benefactor’s and College’s priorities to create an endowment that will sustain its quality programs and allow it to capitalize on emerging opportunities. This, in turn, will bring national recognition to The University of Alabama Honors College and position it to be a first-choice destination for the brightest minds across the country.
