Welcome to the lee honors college

Welcome to the Lee Honors College of Western Michigan University!

Founded in 1962, the Lee Honors College is one of the oldest honors colleges in the country. The honors college has grown in recent years to nearly 1,750 students (nearly 10% of WMU undergraduates), and many programs and opportunities have been initiated, expanded and enhanced. The college has been fortunate to have had visionary and strong leaders over its history, and I am honored to have the opportunity to continue its tradition of being a beacon of undergraduate academic excellence at WMU.

We have many exciting events and opportunities planned for the spring 2018 semester.  Our Lyceum Lecture series, Mental Health Matters: College Student Mental Health in the 21st Century, will provide students and others with information about current trends and common mental health challenges among college students. The free lectures are held most Wednesdays at noon in the honors college lounge starting September 13th. Plan to join us for what are sure to be stimulating and inspiring presentations, and read more about the series by visiting our Lyceum Lecture series page.

The Lee Honors College strives to provide an exceptional undergraduate experience for high achieving students. We provide a small college experience in concert with the benefits of a large public research university. Please peruse our website to learn more about the many opportunities in the college.
