James Scholar Honors Program

Effective fall semester 2013, all students entering the James Scholar Honors Program in the College of Fine and Applied Arts will follow the new program outlined below.

The College of Fine and Applied Arts James Scholar Honors Program focuses on the development of the “socially engaged artist.” Socially engaged artists understand the role their creativity can play in responding to societal changes. Their efforts to use art and cultural districts to change where we live can be major factors in establishing new mind-sets and workplaces for the new economy. Socially engaged artists create solutions that are enlightened and compassionate and that provide social, environmental, and economic justice.

Students in the FAA James Scholar Honors Program will have opportunities to apply for funds to conduct their own research as well as to participate in workshops in leadership, grant writing, and entrepreneurship.
