About Us

The Honors College Leadership Council (HCLC) provides opportunities for the Honors College student body to participate, engage, and make a difference in the College and community. The Honors College is pleased to have students involved and making their voices heard as we shape the future of the College together.  At this time, the HCLC is active only on the Hattiesburg campus. 

Guided by a student President and a staff adviser, the HCLC is composed of five committees (Academic, Community Life, First-Year Mentors, Honors College Ambassadors, and Philanthropy), each of which is led by one student Vice President. For primary duties and membership, click the links below:

How to Join

Each spring, we will open applications for leadership positions and membership for the coming academic year.  Additionally, students new to the Honors College will have an opportunity to apply for select committees (Academic, Community Life, and Philanthropy) in September.

To apply, students must be enrolled, in good standing with the Honors College (not on probation, cumulative GPA at 3.25 or higher), and planning to be enrolled on the Hattiesburg campus for the duration of their service.
