UNG Honors Program
The UNG Honors Program cultivates a community of engaged, academically motivated students who uphold the values of service and integrity, demonstrate global awareness, and exhibit strong leadership skills. Participation in the program does not add or change any requirements for graduation; however, involvement in Honors activities outside the classroom and service to the institution and local community are components of graduating with an Honors designation.
