Welcome to 

Carolyn F. Blakely Honors Program

Message from the Director

The Honors Program at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff is a unit for academically oriented and motivated students.  It offers a planned set of arrangements to serve the needs of talented, gifted, and committed students who are receptive to serious academic challenges.  Our goal is to produce a program that attracts and retains high-achieving scholars with an interest in becoming well-educated and well-rounded people willing to make their respective communities and nation a better place to live, work, and learn.  To achieve this goal, we have complied a collection of experiences that are designed to enrich the educational experience of our scholars.

It is our hope that the scholars in the Honors Program will embrace the opportunities that we provide them with vigor, curiosity, and courage. Honors scholars should be willing to take a look at the world that surrounds them and challenge themselves to learn more about that world.  Honors scholars should also be willing to develop their analytical and critical thinking skills; these are the skills that will carry them far in life.  We embrace the philosophy that these students will excel, but that it is our responsibility to them to facilitate that process. Therefore, the mission of the Honors Program is to prepare and provide to those students curricula and experiences that will challenge them intellectually and ultimately produce graduates who will be assets to their society.

We solicit your suggestions, your inquiries, and certainly your support as we develop a pride of golden lion scholars.
