The University of Minnesota Crookston Honors Program was developed to inspire & transform students’ writing, critical thinking, and leadership skills. Students will be nurtured and challenged to explore ideas, assess values and develop leadership skills. Honors coursework will address the diverse and global atmosphere in which we live. In addition, students in the Honors Program will have the opportunity for various social outings outside of the normal campus experience.
