College of Education Hall of Fame Speaker Series: Dr. Sharon Robinson

The College of Education knows that experience can be a great teacher. That is why, as a continuation of their Professional Learning Series, several CoE Hall of Fame alumni will share their experiences, expertise, and advice on the final Friday of each month this Winter/Spring. The first event in the New Year is a lunch and learn with College of Education distinguished Alumna, Dr. Sharon Porter Robinson (B.A. ’66, M.A. ’76, Ph.D. ‘79).

HON 101 Is Now HON 140

In the past, Honors students have confused HON 101 and UK 101, thinking they are the same class. In order to mitigate this, beginning this spring, HON 101: Knowledge and Society has been renumbered to HON 140: Knowledge and Society. No students will need to be rescheduled and the class fulfills all requirements that HON 101 did. Please encourage your students to reach out to their Honors advisor with any questions or concerns!
