Welcome to the University Honors Program

The University Honors Program (UHP) is the oldest and largest honors program at UNC Charlotte and the only honors program housed within the Honors College. We are an interdisciplinary, multi-year program that welcomes students from any major. The program is focused on  scholarship, community engagement and service, development of leadership skills, and personal development. Our members become part of a unique community of students and faculty who enjoy asking questions, debating ideas, and investigating solutions.
