The IUPUI Honors College is a beacon of academic excellence, inspiring an enduring spirit of inquiry and discovery.

Our promise is a transformative Honors College experience that is challenging, engaging, meaningful, relevant, and one that builds a strong foundation for a lifetime of learning and engagement.

Our dynamic and unique academic endeavors are guided by the IUPUI Principles of Undergraduate Learning-essential ingredients of the undergraduate educational experience at IUPUI. These principles form a vibrant conceptual framework for all Honors Scholars' education.

The principles permeate the curriculum in the major field of study and the IUPUI Honors College. Specific expectations for IUPUI's graduates are determined by the faculty in a student's major field of study in the areas of Core Communication and Quantitative Skills, Critical Thinking, Integration and Application of Knowledge, Intellectual Depth, Breadth, and Adaptiveness, Understanding Society and Culture, and Values and Ethics.

Together, these expectations speak to what Honors Scholars will know as graduates of IUPUI, and what they will be able to do upon completion of their degree.
