The Armstrong Honors Program is dedicated to inspiring students to connect their education to their life experiences.
These connections are forged through hands-on learning, interdisciplinary courses, service learning, and community-based activities.
Learning encourages students at Armstrong to distinguish themselves as leaders in all areas, both on campus, and in the community.
The Honors Program embodies the traditional values of a liberal arts education at its best, fosters a commitment to lifelong learning, and serves as a campus testing ground for innovative approaches to teaching and learning.
