The Chancellor’s Honors Program (CHP) is the University of Tennessee’s largest university-wide honors program. Founded in 1985, CHP membership is approximately 5-10% of undergraduate students. Admission to the program is highly selective and usually occurs when students matriculate from high school. The typical entering Chancellor’s Honors student has excelled in a rigorous high school curriculum and demonstrated exceptional leadership potential.

In recognition of their specialized course work, faculty-mentored independent scholarship, international & intercultural learning, and exceptional academic performance, Chancellor’s Honors students earn an honors-designated diploma and are bestowed an Honors Key. Chancellor’s Honors students often earn membership in one or more college and department-sponsored honors programs and provide leadership for a variety of UT student organizations, honors societies, and community outreach efforts.

Physical copies of the Chancellor's Honors projects are housed in the University Archives. If the project is not available for download in this collection, contact the University Special Collections for access to the original copy.
