The University of Louisville Honors Student Council (HSC) is made up of students selected to represent the vibrant and diverse Honors students at the University of Louisville. The Council exists to create a variety of academic, social, and volunteer events to enhance and engage the Honors community. In addition, the Council functions as a channel of communication through which Honors students can express their thoughts about the Honors Program and contribute their ideas for its improvement. The Council seeks to:

  • Foster academic growth.
  • Provide greater leadership and volunteer opportunities to Honors students within the University.
  • Create a cohesive student community through social activities.
  • Establish a forum through which students, faculty, administration, and staff of the Honors Program may communicate openly and effectively.
