Honors Faculty Fellow Lectures 

The  Honors College Faculty Fellows program encourages curricular innovation, giving faculty the opportunity to design new Honors College courses that also fit within the General Education Foundations (GEF) course framework. 

Each fall, the Honors Faculty Fellows give stud ents and WVU community members the opportunity to learn more about a topic related to their Honors Foundations Course s. See the  2021 Honors Faculty Fellows Lecture Series schedule here

Honors College Recognition Ceremony

All graduating seniors who have completed their Honors College requirements are invited to attend the Honors College Recognition Ceremony. This includes students who have completed the Honors Foundations program, the Honors EXCEL program, and our Honors Laureates who have completed both programs. 

The ceremony will be held each May in the week of Commencement Weekend. Students who graduate in December or August are also invited to join us at the ceremony in the spring. Guests are welcome to attend. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Honors Recognition Ceremony was held virtually in May 2021 and can be viewed on our Honors College YouTube page.

When information on the May 2022 Honors College Recognition Ceremony becomes available, it will be added to our website here.

Please note: students must meet all graduation requirements and deadlines from the Registrar's Office, as well as their academic college, in order to graduate. Students apply separately to receive Honors College recognition.
