The two campus-wide honors programs that comprise Honors and Scholars at the University of Tennessee together serve the needs of the university’s highest-achieving students. While these individual programs are distinct from each other, they both provide a more intimate college experience within the context of this large research university, integrating academic achievement and student life within a culture of intellectual and civic engagement.
Chancellor’s Honors Program. Founded in 1985 and the university’s largest honors program, the CHP seeks to provide its student members with an interdisciplinary academic experience emphasizing intellectual and community engagement.
Haslam Scholars Program. Founded in 2008 with a generous gift from the Haslam family, the HSP is an elite program that provides its students with curricular and co-curricular experiences to foster intellectual curiosity and social responsibility.
