Honors Program

“UConn is a place where you have a lot of opportunities. If you shoot for the stars, you get the support of this massive University behind you,” notes recent graduate Ethan Butler, who is a shining example of what students can do with a UConn Honors education. Ethan graduated with honors in chemical engineering in 2012 as a University Scholar. Ethan was president of Engineers Without Borders and was a member of EcoHuskies and the UConn Environmental Policy Advising Committee. His Honors research experiences helped him be selected as a Portz Scholar in 2012 and a Marshall Scholar in 2013. Ethan’s scholarly work includes developing sustainable practices to supply clean water and renewable energy to communities in developing countries.
