To provide the best possible education for Clark Honors College students, we invite participation both in and out of the classroom from faculty across all departments and disciplines at the University of Oregon.
Primary Thesis Advisors
Every Clark Honors College student must research, write, and orally defend a senior thesis. Projects can take different forms depending on the student's major, and we rely on faculty from the student's major department to serve as their Primary Thesis Advisor throughout the process.
Faculty in Residence
Changes to the structure of the Clark Honors College have created the opportunity for faculty from across campus to move some or all of their teaching and service into the honors college while remaining a part of their existing research home. Such Faculty-in-Residence positions are available on either 4-year or 8-year contracts.
Affiliated faculty are award-winning teachers and researchers from across the University of Oregon, who apply to teach one or more courses designed specifically for the honors college. These experts bring a breadth of interests and topics to their courses, and provide invaluable learning and mentorship experiences for honors college students.
