Community Engagement Recognition

Honors College students working towards an Honors College Scholar award may, also, earn the Community Engagement Recognition (CER). The CER allows students to earn credit for activities on the Honors College campus and community engagement outside the traditional academic setting. Please note that the CER requirements are different based on when students were admitted into the Honors College.

There are currently two models in order to earn this distinguished award:

3>2>1 Model (Effective Fall 2020 onward) 

  • Students who joined the Honors College in the Fall of 2020 or later can earn the Honors College Community Engagement Recognition by attending 3 Honors College events, 2 Honors College Community Service opportunities, and 1 campus event each semester.
  • Eligible events are advertised in weekly listserv notifications sent to all Honors College students' UNT email accounts, and on the Honors College Canvas Calendar.
  • More information about the program and reporting requirements will be on the Honors College Canvas page.

Receive credit by sending picture proof of each event attended to honorscommunity@unt.edu within a month of the event.

100-Hour Model (for students that joined the Honors College prior to Fall 2020)

  • Students who joined the Honors College before the Fall of 2020 can earn the Community Engagement Recognition by tracking 100 hours of engagement events.
  • More information about the program and reporting requirements will be on the Honors College Canvas page.
  • Students are able to change to the 3>2>1 model under the discretion of Honors College Assistant Director of Student Life, Adam Williamson (Adam.Williamson@unt.edu).
