The Fall 2020 Honors EXCEL Seminars series is designed to answer to the needs and plans of Honors EXCEL students, providing you with opportunities to acquire skills and information essential to completing your experiential and community engaged learning projects.
In addition, this is also a great opportunity
to get to know and exchange ideas with fellow Honors
EXCEL students, learning from each other’s victories and challenges while
strengthening your sense of community. Note also that these seminars can
be counted toward completing the Out-of-Class Experiences (OCEs) requirement for the
program for the current semester.
Finally, as listed below, several of these seminars are reserved for Honors EXCEL students to share your own research with your peers, practicing your presentation skills and receiving helpful feedback from your fellow students. If you would like to present on any of those dates, please hurry to volunteer by completing the sign-up form.
