Ryan Vinh, 4th Year Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior major, has been volunteering with Knights Landing since his 2nd year. Knights Landing One Health Center is a clinic that serves the Knights, a small, rural town of less than 1000 people that is about 30 minutes north of Davis.

From a Day of Service to a Lifetime of Compassion

January 30, 2019
One of the core values of the University Honors Program is Service

Honors students exemplify service through a wide variety of involvements. In their third year, UHP students are required to complete at least 20 hours of community service, although most students are driven to go above and beyond. Honors students truly embody the goals of UHP to provide students with the leadership and compassion to serve and positively impact the community.

Dr. Leah Hibel, associate professor of Human Development and Family Studies, created a special project last fall. In her Human Sexuality honors course, first and second- year students developed a sexual education curriculum for regional foster youth. This project was materialized when a request was sent by Foster and Kinship Care Education, a local program that serves those who want to become foster parents in Yolo County.
