Click the Give Now button above to help the Honors College raise $7,500 for this year's passion project, Honors Action!
Honors Action is an exciting, week-long community engagement experience course designed to provide Honors College freshmen with the opportunity to engage in meaningful community-based partnerships, meet other first-year students, and jumpstart their studies in the Honors College. Student participants in the program arrive on campus before their peers and devote the last week of their summer to service projects in K-12 schools throughout Tuscaloosa County. Over the years, these service projects have included painting, constructing benches and outdoor classrooms and landscaping.
Honors Action has proven time and again to be a high-impact experience for our students and continues to be one of the most effective ways to introduce new students to the Honors College experience. Our student leaders, many of whom come back year after year to serve, facilitate meaningful engagement with the student participants. In turn, the student participants step out of their comfort zones and experience the power of collaboration and community-engaged learning. Your generous gift to the Honors Action program will be crucial as we continue this meaningful work of engaging first-year students in service-learning projects and seeing how impactful their work is on the learning of young minds in their learning spaces.
