About the KHC

The Kellogg Honors College (KHC) continues its mission of inclusive excellence by cultivating the talents of our students, providing enriching and innovative academic experiences, and building a nurturing community of scholars. We provide our students with significant PolyX opportunities such as Community Engagement (CE) events, student research, internship opportunities, honors courses, and many more high-impact practices that lead to excellent outcomes and student success. KHC strives to support our diverse community of students and nurture them as they make progress towards completing their chosen degree programs and transition to their careers of choice.


The Kellogg Honors College cultivates students’ many forms of talent in an academically enriching environment within an inclusive and nurturing community. We motivate and prepare intellectually curious, civically engaged, lifelong learners.


We will be a college that fosters an environment, community, and foundation where personal growth, self-awareness, and professional confidence is coupled with academic excellence, innovation, and career readiness to prepare self-aware, civically engaged, visionary, global citizens.
