Washington Adventist University (WAU) will launch an Honors College in fall 2017 to further enhance its academic offerings and move the University closer to achieving the Vision 2020 – Growing with Excellence plan that seeks to attain excellence at all levels of the institution. The WAU Honors College will be the first Seventh-day Adventist Honors College in the nation.
Work has commenced to develop interdisciplinary Honors degrees, enhanced scholarships, accelerated curricular pathways, service learning courses, competitive internships, as well as partnerships with other institutions for on-location learning opportunities abroad.
“This initiative will help to ensure that WAU provides distinctive holistic faith-informed learning opportunities for students with exceptional academic and character competencies so that students will become the competent moral leaders which are desperately needed to respond to the challenges and opportunities of our global society,” said Cheryl Kisunzu, Ph.D, Provost of WAU.
“Our goal is to produce graduates who bring competence and moral leadership to their communities, and the Honors College will boost their success,” said Weymouth Spence, Ed.D., R.T., President of WAU.
