At the University of Nevada, Reno Honors Program, our students maximize their unique gifts and passions through a series of personalized experiences that deepen their capacity for transformative societal impact. For 60 years we have welcomed students into our supportive, nurturing family. We invite you to join us.
Resilience: an ability to recover from, or adjust easily to, misfortune or change
Ingenuity: the quality of being cleverly inventive or resourceful
Stewardship: the responsible overseeing and protection of something considered worth caring for and preserving
Equity: an approach that ensures everyone access to the same opportunities
These four words serve as our foundation and guide our program at every juncture. Together, their first letters form the word RISE. At the University of Nevada, Reno, we help our students rise to new awareness of self and ability to impact. We will provide you with the support and resources to do so at every step along the way.
