Teaching in Honors:
The UHP seeks top faculty from all disciplines to teach honors courses.
UHP Courses may be taught onload (within your teaching load), or on overload.
- Onload- Teach the UHP course as part of your base teaching load
- Department receives course buyout
- “Held harmless” for student credit hour difference
- Requires approval of department chair and dean
- Overload- Does not impact base teaching load
- Instructor receives $6,000 in unrestricted research funds
Offering a UHP course:
- Any course that fulfills GE or major requirements can be offered as a UHP course
- Courses are 3, 4, or 5 units
- UHP courses are capped at 25 students
- Exceptions: Honors versions of courses that are typically high-enrollment (e.g., BIS 2A, ENG 17) have higher caps, specific to each course.
- Courses are available only to UHP students
- UHP staff works with departmental staff to create and schedule the course
Benefits of teaching a UHP course:
