Honors Program

In 1963, Mr. Heyward Gibbes Hill, a native of Hammond and a long-time officer in the U.S. Foreign Service, donated to the University in memory of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Hill, the family home at 611 North Pine Street. This building, one block from the campus, was used for the Honors Program Office. The Honors Program Office is now located in Meade Hall Room 103.


The Honors Program is designed to prepare students to know and understand the significant ideas and events that have shaped our world and will shape the future; to have confidence in their abilities to think independently, write clearly, and speak effectively; and to be leaders in their communities and professions. It aims to prepare responsible individuals to be perpetual learners who realize their potential for a fully human, ethical, and prosperous life.

International Initiatives

The International Initiatives Office is charged with promoting Southeastern's international programs and projects. These initiatives offer opportunities for students and faculty to participate in activities with students, universities, and other institutions abroad. They afford an international dimension to the academic, cultural, and professional growth of the university and the regional community that better prepares us to play constructive roles in today's global society.


Towards these ends, the International Initiative Office collaborates with a number of administrative offices and academic departments to implement a variety of international programs. These include study abroad programs and academic and development programs in cooperation with international organizations and universities and agencies overseas.


Study Abroad Programs in Austria, China, Costa Rica, England, France, Germany, Honduras, Italy, and other countries offer academic credits in foreign languages, business, sociology, criminal justice, anthropology, biology, political science, music, history, nursing, communication, and other academic areas. More than $45,000 in scholarships for study abroad are awarded each academic year.
