Honors Community Advocates



The mission of the Honors Community Advocates (HCA) is to strengthen the University Honors Program community and to help challenge students to launch extraordinary lives.  This is achieved through coordinating social events, promoting good academic practices, participating in group volunteering, and fundraising to provide scholarship opportunities for Honors students. HCAs serves as a liaison between UHP faculty and students.  They provide academic and social support through events and networking.  They host informational workshops and fundraise by making merchandise and care packages available to Honors students.  HCAs create community service opportunities.  HCAs are expected to complete ten hours of service and to attend at least 75% of HCA meetings.
