Outreaching Honors Program

Society is changing at a fast pace. Processes of globalization and digitalization, increasingly pluralistic communities and a need for growing sustainability have penetrated all societal spheres and require us to face unprecedented ‘wicked problems’ that are resistant to resolution. The Outreaching Honors Program provide educational and experiential opportunities by offering you a number of ambitious modules, challenging you to reflect on yourself and to prepare you for a responsible role in future society.

Following a ‘learning by doing’-approach, you will develop and apply these skills:

  • Contribute to team dynamics
  • Develop leadership skills
  • Develop social entrepreneurship skills
  • Effectively communicate and collaborate
  • Effectively handle conflicts
  • Give back to society
