The mission of the Lake Erie College Honors program is to provide highly motivated and engaged students with experiential learning and personal development activities that will enrich their experience inside and outside of the classroom.
By reflecting upon the learning opportunities present in every facet of life, students’ increased self-awareness, concern for the welfare of others and career readiness will more effectively position them for post-graduation personal and professional success. LEC's Honors Program is customized for each student, guided by faculty coaches and the student's own areas of focus.
