We become what inspires us.
The Niagara County Community Honors Institute provides an enriching and challenging academic experience through unique coursework that stresses an interactive learning experience where students acquire a creative and comprehensive understanding of concepts in an interdisciplinary and global context. Our students think critically, hone research skills, demonstrate leadership, and develop a commitment to civic responsibility.
The Honors Institute also seeks to enhance the educational and scholarship opportunities for students who seek a four-year degree after attending Niagara County Community College.
The Honors Institute houses the President’s Scholars Program and Honors Program. Students interested in participating in a cohesive honors experience at Niagara County Community College and earning the Honors designation on their diploma, may enroll in the Honors Institute’s all-college Presidential scholars program (requires 18 honors credit including a service learning project) or the traditional honors Program (requires 14 honors credits).
