Professor of Philosophy
The Honors Institute offers a unique space for learning in a small cohort of equally engaged learners, and with the possibility of building meaningful, long-lasting relationships with professors who would be acting as intellectual guides.
Assistant Professor of History
America has entered a post-literate, post-truth era, determined to reject the wisdom of the past. The honors curriculum restores that wisdom and offers the student an exodus from a lifetime of banality.
Associate Professor of Bible and Religion
Students will find a supportive community that encourages team-building and constructive competition rather than destructive rivalries; a program that shepherds the mental, spiritual, and intellectual health of its high-achieving students; a refreshing and peaceful natural environment; a place for kindling intellectual curiosity and lifelong friendships; an innovative and active learning environment; and one-on-one coaching from professors who are thought leaders in their fields.
