Honors Program transitions to Honors College

Starting next semester, the long-time Edinboro Honors Program will make the switch to the Honors College.

According to the Boro Weekly sent out to faculty and students, “Edinboro students enrolled in the Honors College will have an opportunity to choose from among Edinboro’s 114 majors and benefit from a common 24-credit honors curriculum which includes three team-taught, multidisciplinary seminars focusing on the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences.”

Honors College Director Roger Solberg, in that email, indicated that the change would work to foster a “richer intellectual environment” as well as a sense of community.

Being a part of the Honors College will give students exclusive opportunities such as a living-learning community, studies abroad, class scheduling and more.


University seeking commencement speaker applications

The spring 2020 commencement is set for Saturday, May 2, and the university is searching for its student speaker.

Students interested in speaking must have a minimum GPA of 3.5, completed a minimum of 45 credits at Edinboro and submitted the SCOTS graduation application. If these requirements are met, they will receive an invitation from Provost and Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs Dr. Michael Hannan to submit a speech synopsis for consideration.

The submission must be one page and received by Friday, March 20. From there, a committee will review applications and select finalists to present their topics the week of March 23.
