Create an HNRS Course Proposal

To submit a proposal to teach an HNRS course for the Ogden Honors College, please complete all fields in the Course Proposal form below. Upon submission, the proposal will be in queue for review by the OHC Faculty Advisory Board. The Board reviews course proposals during meetings early in the semester, after which the faculty member will be provided feedback concerning the proposal.  

Course Proposals are expected to include compelling rationale for the course as an Honors-level experience.
