At Campuswide Honors, we don’t think small. We think big, very big.  So big that we believe all Honors programs across the country should follow the UCI Campuswide Honors model. Being transparent, state and university funding won’t get us to where we need to go. Campuswide Honors has achieved amazing feats on a modest budget, but it is time to go beyond the status quo. Through the Honors for Honors (H4H) campaign, we can achieve this goal together.


H4H is a campaign to engage 25% of all Honors alumni (over 600 alumni) in giving back to Campuswide Honors to ensure funding of the program over the next five years. The H4H Campaign runs from December 8, 2020 to June 30, 2021.


Gifts to the H4H Campaign will be used to: 1) create a stable funding source in these uncertain times 2) increase the visibility of Campuswide Honors nationally 3) ensure the UCI Campuswide Honors experience lives on in future generations of Anteaters.


For the H4H Campaign, we have split all alumni into five year class blocks. See how your class era stacks up to the rest.


Pledges of $100 for five years or gifts over $500 will put your name on the new Honors Donor Wall in the newly created Student Excellence Center. For younger alumni that graduated in the last five years, a total gift of $100 or $20 for five years will get your name on the wall.


The H4H campaign is led by alumni like you. We are grateful for the help of co-chairs Michael and Kim Ong along with other alumni representing each five year group. Our success depends on joining together to spread word of the campaign. Email Jennifer Smith if you are interested in becoming an Honors Ambassador.


We at UCI Honors believe that our students represent the best and the brightest. To highlight the amazing accomplishments and recognize the positive impact our students have on their communities, we are excited to share their stories. Learn out about our UCI Honors students here.
