The Honors Council is a group of dedicated honor students which assumes the most important leadership roles within the Pforzheimer Honors College. The Honors Council was founded in Fall 2007. The council serves as a venue for honors students to explore their leadership abilities as well as social and academic curiosity.
The Honors Council plans and organizes events which benefit Honors students and the entire Pace Community. The Council is in charge of creating ideas that will invoke a sense of community within the Honors College and the rest of the student body. The Council also serves as a liaison between the Honors College and other campus organizations.
Honors Council members are encouraged to attend all events sponsored by Honors. Special consideration should be made by executive board members and committee co-chairs.
We are proud to announce our Honors Council Members for 2020-2021
