Honors Keystone, the research division of the Honors College, has substantially expanded in the last decade. Our dedicated Southern Miss faculty advisers have played a major role in this growth.
Becoming an HC Thesis Adviser is often rewarding for not only the student, but the professor as well. We welcome this partnership, and hope you enjoy the experience. Important information you need to successfully mentor an Honors student is available below and on the Keystone To-Do List. Please contact the College with any questions.
