RWU Honors students are afforded opportunities for co-curricular and community engagement locally and globally. Co-curricular opportunities in Honors are built into the Honors curriculum and cross-pollinate across courses, offering students unique opportunities for interdisciplinary conversations and creative dialogues. RWU Honors also offers unique study-abroad experiences, including a full semester abroad during the sophomore year. This program is unique in that it is led by an RWU faculty who delivers RWU Honors courses in concert with students’ travels and exploration. More broadly, the program’s emphasis on community engagement includes various short-term opportunities for global service-learning, including sites in Jamaica, Brazil, and the Dominican Republic. Meanwhile, closer to home, all Honors Programs students are guaranteed the chance to engage in social issues within our local communities, as they never have before.
