Honors and the Schools

The Honors College at the University of Houston is proud to serve as a resource for hundreds of schools in and around the Houston area. Through our community engagement initiative, Honors and the Schools, we offer stimulating and thought-provoking teacher institutes, summer seminars, public lectures, special events, in-school visits and teaching collaborations. Our goal is to support and enhance the learning environment in schools by sharing our passion and expertise in a variety of subject areas.

Teachers study classic works in American literature alongside significant works by minority writers.
