Founded in 1960, it is one of the oldest public university honors colleges in the United States. The College features a newly restructured curriculum that provides students a strong interdisciplinary foundation in the liberal arts, as well as a series of signature programs, including Calderwood Seminars in Public Writing, the Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program, and an Academic Residential Community. CHC courses are typically run as seminars and are writing-intensive. Courses are capped at 19 students, allowing for vibrant intellectual discussions and faculty-student interaction. The Visiting Fellow in Equity, Justice and Inclusion focuses on a theme which rotates each year. For the inaugural 2021-22 year, the theme is Black experiences in the United States.
