Emory & Henry College has demonstrated that honors, far from being elitist, benefits all the students on campus. The faculty of Emory & Henry College established the honors program in 2009 to provide an enhanced academic experience for the college's best students. The program inducted its first class of sixteen students in the fall of 2009, and the first cohort graduated with College Honors Diplomas in May of 2013. The author, who is the president of the college, arrived at Emory & Henry soon after in August 2013, when the honors program was already establishing itself as a success. In this article, the author shares the faculty goals in establishing the honors program, along with a brief overview of the program offered at Emory & Henry.
