Lane's Honors Program Leadership Team

Lane Community College has adopted a liberal education model in its current strategic plan. In the coming years, we expect this model to guide development of an empowering approach to critical thinking and lifelong learning for all of our students.

Our goal is to create and nurture learning environments that support the intellectual, social and civic development of all of our students, from under-prepared to high-achieving and across all areas of the college's comprehensive mission. At the heart of the community college mission is a commitment to meeting students where they are and helping them attain their educational goals.

The Honors Program will fill a long-standing gap at Lane, providing a focused path for well-prepared students who are ready to engage learning at an appropriately advanced pace and level. Creating a community of honors students has been a long-standing goal of the Learning Communities plan.

The Lane Honors Program will provide academic and social integration for advanced students at Lane and a transformative learning experience for all students who are up for the challenge.
