Welcome to Honors

Mission Statement

The mission of the Arizona Western College Honors Program is to serve as a vehicle for students to explore and expand their intellectual, physical, social and emotional boundaries. 

Philosophy of the Honors Program

The Honors Program is dedicated to providing a variety of formal and informal learning opportunities designed to enrich each student’s overall experience at Arizona Western College.  Our goal is to encourage interaction between students and faculty that stimulates intellectual and emotional student growth.  We – the Honors Council and Director – are dedicated to working with the rest of the AWC Faculty to develop well-crafted curricula as the foundation for the Honors Program. 

To achieve this, the Honors Program raises the level of discourse at AWC by encouraging and fostering in Honors students an attitude of intellectual risk-taking, and an emboldened approach to the standard conditions of academia.  The Honors Program joins the larger College community in promoting the value of life-long learning among its students, faculty, and administrative staff.
