Personal and academic successes are the cornerstones of the Pierre Laclede Honors College at the University of Missouri–St. Louis. The honors college encourages its undergraduate students to cultivate their creative capacities through independent study, supervised research and small seminars.
The University of Missouri System recently featured the honors college in a video. Robert Bliss, dean of the college, and Stephanie McDonald, a graduate student in accounting, discussed the college in the video. McDonald, who was an honors student when the video was shot, has since received her bachelor’s degree in accounting.
