Faculty & Staff Resources

Engage With Us

There are many ways for faculty and staff to engage with the honors program.  

Nominate a Student

Faculty can nominate a current first-year student to join the Honors Program by sending an email to honors@merrimack.edu. Depending on the number of students currently in the Program, new students with an exceptional first-semester GPA may be extended an invitation to join. The rising sophomore admit program is announced at the beginning of the spring semester.

Serve as an Adviser

The Honors Program Committee serves in an advisory capacity to the Honors Program.

Faculty from across the campus are engaged in teaching Honors courses. Learn about the guidelines for creating an honors course.
