About University Honors
Scholars for Justice in the Heart of Detroit
The University Honors Program draws on UDM's Jesuit and Mercy identity through a curriculum that encourages both critical thinking about the great questions of the past and engagement with the essential challenges of the present and future.
As a community, we seek to pursue truth, wisdom and virtue, preparing students — whatever their career paths — to lead meaningful lives with and for others, and to work for a more just world.
Here are just a few of the opportunities you can take advantage of as a student in University Honors at UDM:
