University Honors Student Association

The University Honors Student Association (UHSA) seeks to enhance the experience of students in the University Honors program. All honors students are a part of UHSA and are encouraged to take advantage of the many events and opportunities provided by the group. Becoming involved in UHSA gives students the chance to help shape University Honors to best benefit honors students, the campus, and the local community.

Be a part of something bigger

UHSA offers students the chance to:

  • Build leadership skills by serving in any of a wide variety of roles within the group
  • Meet other honors students
  • Voice their opinion to make UHSA and University Honors the best it can be
  • Become involved in UHSA's Mentor Program, which gives mentees the choice to attend social events, get specific questions answered, and take advantage of the experience of an upperclass mentor who has taken a similar path
  • Give back to UMD and Duluth through events and volunteer work

CHUM Partnership

Members of University Honors are selected for their skill and motivation both inside and outside the classroom. UHSA is proud of its longstanding partnership with CHUM working with the Steve O'Neil apartments, a complex providing permanent, affordable supportive housing for 44 homeless families and 6 units of Emergency Family Shelter. Each year, UHSA students provide mentoring, tutoring, and instructional services to children living in the apartments. Also, UHSA hosts several events both at the apartments and on campus including BBQs and a UMD campus visit.

Make a Difference

UHSA members have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of these families by providing mentoring and tutoring for children, serving the many needs of a large non-profit group, and generally assisting families as their specific situations require.
