UC Davis Honors 50th

UC Davis University Honors Program Student Raven Barbera

Celebrating 50 Years of Honors

In 1969 the founding of Integrated Studies started a 50-year journey of providing vibrant living-learning experiences to UC Davis students. Over the past half-century, Integrated Studies became the Integrated Studies Honors Program; Davis Honors Challenge was then added to offer a program focused on team activities for upper division students. In 2014 both programs merged to become the University Honors Program with a new 4-year curriculum. In 2019 we will be celebrating 50 years of Honors at UC Davis.

Director Dave Furlow and the entire UHP family are organizing a celebration for October 11-12, 2019 that looks back over the past 50 years, and forward to the next 50. We have much to celebrate! Please help us spread the word to our alumni far and wide.
