Hillsborough Community College's Honors Institute is designed to promote a rigorous academic program for exceptionally talented and motivated students. With the evolving goal of gaining a comprehensive view of the nature of thought, knowledge, and human understanding in an environment of creative interaction, the students will explore the fundamental ideas of human civilization from a variety of academic disciplines. The Honors students will be challenged to accept their moral responsibilities which include leadership, thoughtful self-governance, and service to others.  

The Honors Institute holds institutional memberships in a number of organizations that provide us with opportunities for professional and leadership development. Several members of the Honors Institute staff have held leadership roles in these organizations. To learn more about these memberships, click here.
