Institute Honors Program
The Institute Honors Program is open to cadets of all majors who seek ways to broaden and deepen their academic experience at VMI. Honors cadets explore current events in a weekly honors forum, probe complex issues in honors seminars, and join with a faculty mentor in a sustained undergraduate research experience culminating in a senior thesis.
Along the way, they enjoy special meetings with such distinguished visitors as Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel, journalist Thomas Friedman, physicist Brian Greene, and artist William Christenberry, and they are treated to a variety of other special events designed to challenge and inspire them.
Active student chapters of academic and professional societies are sponsored by VMI's academic departments.
