University of Nebraska-Lincoln
Community: Neihardt Residence Center, the first residence hall built on campus in 1931, is an historic building that houses 400 Honors students and serves as the focus of Honors activities on campus. The Residence also houses Program administrators, faculty offices, classrooms, conference rooms, computer labs, study rooms and lounge areas open to all Honors Program students. The Honors community is a welcoming and energetic environment shaped by its students who build relationships based on shared academic priorities and interest. Undergraduate Research: Undergraduate research opportunities in which students interact closely with a faculty advisor to conduct research are critical to the Honors Program experience. Together the student and faculty advisor will draft a research abstract, outlining the expectations the faculty advisor has, and under the guidance of the faculty mentor, the student will complete the project. E.N. Thompson Forum on World Issues: Over the past two decades, the E.N. Thompson Forum on World Issues has established itself as one of the preeminent speakers series in higher education.
