The Lane Honors Program provides students with a transformative learning experience centered around scholarly inquiry, academic rigor and intellectual growth. Through challenging coursework, independent study, special seminars and a capstone project, students develop their critical thinking skills, creativity and intellectual curiosity.
Students admitted into the Honors Program receive many educational benefits, including:
- collaborative learning with other engaged students
- faculty mentorship
- dynamic classes that allow for discussion and debate
- e-portfolio instruction

After completing the Lane Honors Program, students transferring to four-year institutions will be well-prepared for upper division coursework and university honors programs. Non-transfer students can enroll in and benefit from the Honors Program as well.
This multifaceted, interdisciplinary program provides all participating students with research, reasoning and writing skills that will enhance their experience as engaged global citizens and encourage a lifelong love of learning.

Fall 2013 Honors Event: A2-B-C Film Screening
Lane's Honor Program is receiving an honor itself: Ian Thomas Ash is allowing his award-winning documentary on post-Fukushima radiation health issues to be shown by the program; he will join the audience and Honors students for Q&A via Skype following the screening.
Mr. Ash resides in Japan, so was there with camera when the earthquake and tidal wave damaged the Fukushima reactors. He has been filming the stories of families and children who have developed thyroid cysts following the release of uncountable amounts of radiation. He pays tributes to the mothers of these children who broke a seemingly conspiratorial silence to speak up about the health of their children and confront medical, educational and government officials.
Please join us at this event to engage a level of deeper understanding on a critical and global issue of health, science, and government transparency. Screening will begin at 6pm on Wednesday, November 13, in the Lane Art Gallery. Q&A with the director will follow the screening, beginning around 7:15pm. Directly following Q&A will be a reception where attendees will have the opportunity to record messages for the mothers and families in this film, which Ian will share with them.
