Wilkes University

A Message From the Directors


The Wilkes University Honors Program has been built around students. We strive to provide students with opportunities to further their educational experience through broadened intellectual, cultural, and experiential opportunities.

We hope to connect personally to students, to learn about their aspirations, and to help them achieve their goals. We do this through partnerships with faculty, departments, and schools and colleges on campus that foster independent research and innovative ideas; study abroad and internship support; opportunities to connect tomorrow’s leaders with those of today; extracurricular trips to expand knowledge; and programs to build friendships, provide mentoring, and encourage intellectual growth.

As a member of the Honors Program, you will be part of a community of scholars who offer one another support and encouragement, and who are mentored by faculty and staff dedicated to your individual growth and intellectual development.

Our program seeks individuals who want to utilize their education to build these values.

The information on this site will give you further information about our Program and some of the opportunities our current students have enjoyed, but we encourage students to utilize the Honors Program opportunities to forge their own unique path of intellectual growth.
