The mission of the Presidential Scholars Program is to provide honors students with an enriched learning environment in the liberal
arts. The program challenges honors students intellectually through rigorous liberal
arts courses and shared scholarly extracurricular experiences. Our goal is for our
students to be active participants in their own intellectual development. With a diverse
student body from majors across the college, the Presidential Scholars Program fosters
a cohesive community of scholars who become leaders on campus and in their fields.
Our program seeks to take advantage of our location in New York City, using it to
enrich our classrooms and expand students’ horizons.
