More than 50 years ago, Providence College initiated a challenging curriculum for exceptionally capable students under the direction of Dr. Paul van K. Thomson. Since then, more than 1,000 talented undergraduates and dedicated faculty have exemplified PC’s academic excellence as part of the Liberal Arts Honors Program (LAHP).
Through the decades, the alumni community has become an active and important part of the Honors legacy at PC.
The Liberal Arts Honors Program and its leaders have recently proposed three new and ambitious initiatives:
A detailed strategic plan outlines the steps necessary to achieve these initiatives. The cost for achieving these goals is modest--estimated at $40,000 per year. Support will be derived from The Thomson Fund, generously supported for many years by program alumni, but the fund will need additional contributions to support these new initiatives.
Providence College and the Honors Program have also created a new Annual Fund, in which donations can be used immediately to support co-curricular events for Honors students.
