Above: Wesley Meyers & Emma Castanho, Past and Present Honors College Advisory Board Members
Established in 1997, the Honors College Board serves as the on-campus advisory group to the dean.  As a unique feature, the Board of Directors is comprised entirely of Honors students who nominate and elect their own officers. 

The board advises the dean on all matters and policies including College admissions, requirements to stay in the College, the mentoring program , curriculum changes, Honors classes, the Pledge Ride Scholarship program, and all social activities.

All Honors students are welcome to attend board meetings. Membership occurs through invitation from either current members or the dean, himself.
