Being able to work with UNC Charlotte’s most high-achieving students provides a rewarding and enriching experience for faculty and staff. The small instructor-to-student ratio not only inspires a sharing of intellectual passions, but encourages a curiosity and motivation not found in a large lecture class.
Faculty and staff are involved in honors at UNC Charlotte in several ways:
- Serve as advisors/mentors to students completing their senior thesis/project
- Serve as an honors program director or be invited by the Executive Director to serve on various committees
- Teach honors courses. The average size of an honors section is 17 students, making for a much more intimate setting that better facilitates discussion and understanding
