"Teaching Honors classes has been a very gratifying experience for me as a professor. In my experience, students in the Honors program are very involved across campus in leadership activities, and it is wonderful to hear about their experiences and see them learning from each other. The students bring a high level of energy and excitement to each class session, which I really appreciate!"

Teaches: Business and Society Cohort

"The Honors Program at Villanova provides a wonderful opportunity to work closely with some of our most capable students in an environment that approximates what one expects to find at a small, elite liberal arts college. The program promotes a deeper dive into the primary sources that ground our various disciplines, and it encourages students to expect more—of themselves, of their peers and of their instructors. It’s a great place to teach and to learn."
