Get out there and do.

Helen P. Denit Honors Program service-learning, volunteer and co-curricular activities enhance your academic experience with opportunities that cultivate leadership skills and personal and professional development and foster a commitment to scholarship, civic engagement and cultural diversity.


Keep track of your participation.

Keep track of your event attendance using this form and submit it to at the end of each semester with the subject line "Denit Events Form."

It is very important that you sign in to all events because that is how we confirm your participation and give you credit toward your graduation requirements.

The Helen P. Denit Honors Program encourages creativity, scholarship, volunteerism, travel and cultural exploration by financially supporting student participation in diverse experiential learning activities and co-curricular events.

To graduate from the Helen P. Denit Honors Program, you must participate in Denit honors sponsored events and activities.

We also offer financial awards that support nonpaid internships, service and study abroad, leadership development, research publication and presentation. These awards are competitive and all require a contribution to the honors program via participation in honors sponsored events.


For each academic year that you are enrolled in the Helen P. Denit Honors Program, you must attend:

  • a combination of six events in Categories 1 and 2
  • a combination of three events in Categories 1 and 2 AND one from Category 3.

If you join the HPD Honors Program in the spring semester, you only need to achieve half of the criteria for that specific academic year.
