Supplemental Questions
  1. The Honors College is more than a scholarship—it’s a diverse living-learning community of dreamers, intellectuals and innovators. Our community is committed to cultivating an inclusive, equitable, supportive and welcoming environment at the highest level. We acknowledge and listen to those voices that have been marginalized and silenced for far too long. We leverage privilege to ensure justice for all. We practice civility and empathy. Believing in and nourishing an active, engaged, and inclusive citizenry that yields positive social change is our top priority. I agree with the above statements and realize I am applying for a unique opportunity that includes a supportive environment for a diverse community of students.
