Biology majors in architecture classes, computer science majors on archeological digs. Welcome to the Clark Honors College, where we've been breaking the rules and mixing things up for over 50 years. Our small classes bring together the best students from every discipline at the University of Oregon. Led by award-winning faculty, we are a community of insatiably curious, undeniably driven, unique individuals. We don't just try and find the answer to a question—we find new questions. In this fusion of diverse perspectives we seek the connections, rather than the separations. And we find them, together.
We the students, faculty, and staff of the Clark Honors College are committed to nurturing a diverse community. When we learn from each other, and are exposed to ideas we may not have thought of before, it makes us better citizens, able to engage in thoughtful and critical discussion about our world and our role in it. We do not condone any form of racism, homophobia, misogyny, ableism, xenophobia, or religious prejudice within our community, and will treat each other with kindness, reserving judgment, and recognize that we are greatly enriched by our diversity.
At the Clark Honors College we are proud to provide an excellent public university education to the best and brightest young minds from Oregon, and across the country.
Our alumni, donors, and friends of the college are invaluable in helping us make an honors education a reality. Learn more about how you can help us educate the next generation of high achieving students.
