For the past eighty-two years, Monroe College has been committed to being a national leader in urban and international education. Established in the fall of 2004, the honors program has been transformative for the college, bringing together a wide range of professionals from across disciplines to provide innovative academic offerings. The program has had a significant impact in helping the institution meet its mission of providing wide access and strong outcomes to both local and international students, and at an institution whose mission is to provide career-oriented education, the honors program has energized our liberal arts and sciences offerings. The best way to describe the value of honors at Monroe is in the words of the graduates, from whom three themes emerge: the challenging nature of earning an honors diploma, the fond memories of field trips and social activities, and the sense of pride in being part of a special community. This brief article provides testimony from several Monroe graduates about their experience at the honors program.
