Honors Colloquium

[From Latin: com+loqui: "To talk together."]

"Colloquium" is Latin for dialogue or conversation. The Honors Colloquium is an opportunity for students to meet and talk with local, regional, and national leaders and scholars about topics that relate to the semester's courses. The Honors Colloquium series may also include museum trips, service projects, productions, and other leadership and learning activities.

Typically there are four colloquia per semester, and honors students are required to attend all of them to remain in good standing with the Honors Program.

Colloquium Make-up Form

Honors students are expected to attend all colloquia. If a student misses a colloquium, that student is expected to find and attend a make-up event. That event must be approved by the Honors staff prior to the student's attendance at the event. Unless a student misses a colloquium event for class, any make-up colloquium must be accompanied by a 500-word essay summarizing the details of the event. Completed essays should be emailed to honors@uttyler.edu Students must send all make-up essays to honors@uttyler.edu by the first day of finals in order to have successfully made up missed colloquia for the semester.

Students can fill out a colloquium make-up form here.
