Douglass Honors Program


The Douglass Honors Program serves the nearly 200 Honors College students who have enrolled in Douglass Residential College in three ways – the Innovator-in-Residence Program, the Douglass Honors College Coalition, and through programming throughout the year.

Innovator-in-Residence Program

The 2017-2018 Innovator-in-Residence, Julia Buntaine, will teach an immersive, two-week course based in New York City in January that introduces students to the S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) movement. 24 students will be selected for this all-expenses-paid experience by a competitive application process. These students will present their work at a showcase in the spring semester. Buntaine will also serve as a mentor to students throughout the year.


The Douglass Honors College Coalition

21 students represent their class year by informing the administrations of both colleges how to best meet their needs in terms of policies and programming.


Program of Events

The Douglass Honors Program offers a robust program of events throughout the year that educates students in women’s issues, social justice, community leadership, and career planning. Most of these events are open to all women in the Honors College.
