Honors Program

Honors Program Committee

The Honors Program Committee is a continuing ad hoc committee duly constituted by the Merrimack Faculty Senate. Its members include four elected faculty members (one each from business, humanities, social science, and science and engineering), serving staggered two-year terms; the Director of the Honors Program; and up to four honors students recruited by the committee to serve as non-voting liaison members. The HPC provides ongoing oversight of the Honors Program’s administration, its curriculum, and its co-curriculum, including course selection, review of honors component proposals from students, and assessment.
