The Eminence Fellows Program places a high regard on academic rigor and original inquiry. With the opportunities of a first-class research university and the close-knit community of a liberal arts college, Eminence Fellows have the opportunity to work closely with some of the universities most distinguished faculty through the Eminence Faculty Network.
Beginning research as early as the first year, Fellows go on to contribute to the body of knowledge by completing an Honors Thesis or other capstone requirement for graduation. This collaborative experience enhances learning in all disciplines.
Eminence Faculty Network
One of the goals of the Eminence Fellows Program is that each Fellow will develop close relationships with faculty members in an area of mutual interest. To meet this goal, the Eminence Program has created a network of faculty who are well connected to a wide variety of other faculty in their own and related disciplines and are able to identify those faculty who could potentially become mentors. This interaction will enhance the students' academic experience and help to connect them to opportunities, other influential faculty, staff, and students (both undergraduate as well as graduate).
