In this moment of ongoing COVID-19, intensifying racial injustice, and deepening economic inequalities, it is more imperative than ever for an honors education to play a role in helping students see their research and learning as contributing to the common good. The strength of many honors programs is their orientation toward the liberal arts, and the deep history of this emphasis in fact places the honors academic experience in a unique position to investigate the vast changes facing our world. Therefore, as faculty and staff working closely with students in honors educational settings, we need to continuously reflect on how the purpose of an honors education needs to adapt in order to inspire our students to understand and engage seriously with today’s most pressing issues.
