The University of Pittsburgh established the University Honors College (UHC) in 1986 to meet the special academic and co-curricular needs of capable and motivated undergraduate students. Building upon the achievements of the University Honors Program, begun in 1978, the UHC provides increased opportunity, incentives, and recognition for high academic attainment by students. That is our primary mission, and everything we do can be viewed from that perspective.
