Honors Program Missions Statement

The mission of the Honors Program at Coffeyville Community College is to provide pathways for students interested in exploring a deeper path of academic study. Our goal is to support students in pursuing their academic goals while encouraging and facilitating growth in personal and academic talents. The Honors Program encourages collaborative learning, independent research, development of professional and academic relationships, and service to the college and surrounding community.
