Honors Program

Preparing the next generation of leaders to engage our complex and rapidly changing world

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.
