Honors College Leadership Council

Honors College Leadership Council (HCLC) provides a wide variety of leadership opportunities to Honors students through academic, service, and social activities. Honors students in HCLC lead and participate in projects designed to strengthen the Honors community, encourage long-lasting friendships, and build Honors traditions. There are three standing committees of HCLC --  programming, service, and marketing -- that Honors students can join, as well as several ad hoc or special committees/organizations. Each standing committee is led by an Honors College Student Director. All Honors students are welcomed and encouraged to attend HCLC meetings to learn about joining other groups.
HCLC is the clearing house for information about other Honors student groups such as: 

The Book Exchange

Located in both Douglass House and 7800 York Road room 132, The Book Exchange operates as a lending library. Students can borrow fiction, non-fiction, and even textbooks that have been donated by current and former Honors College students, staff, and faculty members. 

Honors Helping Hands

The Honors Helping Hands acts as the standing service committee of HCLC which plans and executes service projects both on and off campus.

Honorables of Color

The mission of Honorables of Color (HoC) is to provide an intentional space for Students of Color within the Honors College community to gather and create a close-knit community that strives to represent, connect, and celebrate their successes from across academic majors.

Undergraduate Research Club

The Undergraduate Research Club (URC) is a student-founded collaboration between the Honors College, the Provost's Office, and the Office of Undergraduate Research and Creative Inquiry. An SGA-affilliated club, URC provides opportunities and resources for students interested in learning more about or conducting undergraduate research on their own or in groups while here at TU. Activities include grant-writing, applying for conferences, practicing presentations, and learning to apply undergraduate research to graduate school and career opportunities.

Honors Recruitment Officers

Recruitment Officers serve as student ambassadors of the Honors College, assisting with on and off-campus university activities for prospective students. Honors Recruitment Officers have a passion for their studies, their community, and the Honors College. They assist with prospective student Open Houses, TU4U, and admitted student days and welcome prospective students to general Honors events like the Celebration of Scholarship and Learning. Students who serve as Recruitment Officers develop a wide range of transferable communication and interpersonal skills. They are often the first point of contact between a prospective student and the Honors College and set the tone for the entire Honors community and student experience.

Not Your Granny's Book Club

Not Your Granny's Book Club (NYGBC) selects a book or two to read each semester and gathers regularly to discuss. Past events have even included a literary ball where students dressed as their favorite characters from works of literature.
