Number of UHON Graduates Almost Reaches 2019-20 Records

May 26, 2021
Submitted By: Don Jones

In 2021, the number of seniors completing the University’s Honors Program capped a ten -year period of remarkable growth. Despite a full academic year during the pandemic, 68 seniors graduated with University Honors. This total almost reaches the records set in 2019 and again in 2020 when there were 70 UHON graduates in each year. 

With 70, 70, and 68 UHON graduates in the last three academic years, the annual average for the last ten years, meaning from 2012 to 2021, is 50 honors graduates per year. The expansion of the Honors Program began in 2008 so if one looks back to the preceding ten- year period (from 1998-2007), the average number of UHON graduates was ten. Thus, the Honors Program has had remarkable growth: a fivefold increase!

These results are a testament to the dedication of the Honors Program leaders (co-Directors Dr. Donald Jones and Dr. Claudia Oakes), the Honors Coordinator of each college, and the professors who mentored these students.
