Dean Gretchen Holbrook Gerzina

I am very excited to welcome each member of the Commonwealth Honors College community to another academic year. This year marks the beginning of our 20th anniversary as a college, recognizing our first full incoming class in 1999. The long history of the Honors College, however, began with the Honors Program which was founded in 1960. You are invited to participate in the exciting series of events and lectures planned to mark this milestone, as we work together to strengthen our Honors community of students, faculty, alumni, and friends.
