Philosophy of the Honors College
The Honors College is devoted to providing an array of formal and informal learning opportunities intended to deepen each student’s overall experience at Bethune-Cookman University. Our goal is to encourage interaction between students and faculty that stimulates intellectual and student self-actualization. We are dedicated to working with the rest of the B-CU faculty to develop well-crafted curricula as the foundation for the Honors College.
To achieve this, the Honors College heightens the level of communications at B-CU by promoting and nurturing in Honors students a direction of intellectual quest, and an inspired approach to learning. The Honors College joins the larger University community in promoting the significance of life-long learning among its students, faculty, administration and staff.
