Mission and Values
The University Honors Program at Lake Superior State provides an important dimension of the University's strong commitment to excellence in teaching and learning. The Honors Program seeks to create a community of scholars characterized by strong student and faculty interaction.
This community fosters an approach to education that incorporates
the qualities of self-directed learning,
a positive response to demanding work, and
an appreciation of knowledge for its own sake.
Objectives of the Honors Program
Honors Program graduates know their disciplines in more distinctive and demonstrable ways than their peers.
Honors Program graduates think about their own primary fields of study and other disciplines in integrative ways.
Honors Program graduates apply knowledge to address contemporary problems and communicate their contributions through effective speech and writing.
"LSSU is a relatively small school and I believe for this reason I have received a better education. The close atmosphere as opposed to a larger university has provided me with an opportunity to become acquainted with my professors. The professors therefore have an opportunity to assist with problems fairly easily, especially in upper level classes. The classes are fairly small also which provides one on one conversations which is very helpful."
