Honors Program

 Mission Statement

The Mission of the El Paso Community College Honors Program is to promote academic excellence and to provide an intellectually stimulating program for exceptionally talented and motivated students.


The Honors Program is dedicated to inspiring students to challenge themselves, to promote scholarship, and to encourage higher levels of reasoning and critical thinking skills. Promoting excellence includes experimental/alternative learning styles, academic intensity, leadership skills, intellectual flexibility, and student-faculty interaction. The program will foster a supportive and nurturing environment that will result in creative interaction, intellectual enrichment, and formal recognition of Honors students and will prepare students to continually improve their personal quality of life, as well as to contribute to the greater El Paso community.
