Honors Institute in Critical Thinking
If you are interested in exploring the ways we think and then using those insights to make a meaningful difference in the world, Jewell has a unique honors program for you.

Successful Honors Institute students demonstrate intellectual curiosity and a drive to better their communities. We’re looking for applicants with those traits, not just good grades and test scores.
