MISSION AND HISTORY
Honors Congress Mission:
"The Honors Congress exists to strengthen the Honors community by providing academic, volunteer and social outlets for Honors students. True excellence arises not from mere academics, but from a rounded character demonstrating a commitment to community involvement and integrity in all endeavors. With this in mind, the Honors Congress is committed to developing a diversified student body. The Honors Congress fosters a spirit of unity through the facilitation of social, academic and volunteer activities and cultivates a sense of community within Burnett Honors College."
