Update Contact Info



As an alumnus of the Clark Honors College, we want to support you in staying connected to the college and to your fellow alumni, and we want to encourage you to enrich the community through interacting with current CHC students.  What made a difference to you while you were in the CHC?  A faculty mentor? An internship? A study abroad experience that opened doors you didn’t even know existed?  We invite you to share these experiences with current CHC students through informal talks, newsletter articles, and mentorship or internship opportunities.

  Contact us with your ideas! 


Family members are crucial to the academic and personal success of our students.

You have played a pivotal part in supporting your student to become a member of the Clark Honors College community. We invite you to become part of our community as well!

CHC Reunion Book

The Clark Honors College is 60 years old! While an in-person celebration of our 60th anniversary will have to be delayed, we have been looking for innovative ways to reach out to our growing and far-flung alumni community. One opportunity for honors college alumni to celebrate this milestone anniversary is through our CHC Reunion Book, launched in April of 2021. An invitation to create a personal page in this digital book was sent to all alumni for whom we have a current email address. If you did not receive an invitation and would like to be included, please contact Elin England at
