CHIP: Clark Honors Introductory Program
For a list of Fall 2012 CHIP course descriptions, click here.
The Clark Honors Introductory Program (CHIP) extends the Clark Honors College network beyond CHC classes and residence halls. Current CHC students apply to become CHIP leaders, and then mentor groups of 10-15 freshmen by providing interest-based social and academic opportunities. CHIP leaders help introduce new students to the CHC, the University of Oregon, and Eugene.
What is a CHIP?
A CHIP, or a Clark Honors Introductory Program, is an engaging one-credit course, required of Honors College freshmen. Each CHIP fulfills three main objectives:
- To explore a particular field of interest, be that music, science, foraging, political activism, or the role of the apocalypse in modern culture.
- To introduce incoming freshmen to the opportunities and resources available in the CHC, University of Oregon, and Eugene communities.
- To create an active advising relationship between incoming students and CHC faculty.
Signing Up for a CHIP
Incoming freshmen register for a CHIP at IntroDUCKtion in July.
