Olivet College receives $100,000 from the McGregor Fund for the Global Citizen Honors Program
Jun 09, 2004

OLIVET, Mich. Olivet College has received a $100,000 grant from the McGregor Fund to implement a Global Citizen Honors Program (GCHP). The program is designed to meet the needs of motivated, highly talented students by offering enriched and demanding curricular and co-curricular experiences.

Students selected for the program will be asked to investigate global, interdisciplinary issues using critical analysis, independent thinking and creative problem solving. The GCHP will have three distinct academic experiences: honors class, honors option courses and an honors project, along with co-curricular opportunities to provide a comprehensive experience.

Olivet is committed to establishing our honors program as innovative and challenging, as well as making it an important part of our responsibility focus, said President Don Tuski. Students who become a part of the Global Citizen Honors Program will experience a wide variety of intellectually enriching activities, which are embodied in the liberal arts education. They will be well prepared upon graduation to excel as career professionals and as servant leaders.

The program will allow the college to be more competitive when recruiting high school students with potential for superior academic achievements. Funding will allow the program to increase honor student participation to 100 students in four years.

The McGregor Fund, based in Detroit, is a private foundation established in 1925 by gifts from Katherine and Tracy McGregor. The foundation awards grants to organizations in human services, education, health care, arts and culture and public benefit.
