What is the Honors College Executive Director’s Circle?

The Executive Director’s Circle is a community of alumni, faculty, staff and friends who, with annual leadership gifts, provide critical support that allows the Honors College to seize opportunities as it strives toward its goal of excellence.  All Circle members will be invited to an annual Circle event and will be recognized in the annual Donor Report. Additionally, members will receive invitations to other university events.

How does the Executive Director’s Circle make an impact?

The Honors College continues to expand to benefit students, and has grown increasingly competitive on the national and international stages. To foster programs, scholarships, and research that shape the leaders of tomorrow, the Honors College relies on the generosity of donors. Here are just a few of the ways your annual Executive Director’s Circle gift can make a difference for the Honors College, its faculty and students:

  • Student scholarships
  • Student participation in cultural enrichment events
  • Support for students taking part in Study Abroad experiences

Join us as we continue a tradition of excellence in the Honors College at Tarleton State University.

Formerly: The Honors College Enrichment Society

Prior to Fall 2016 and the establishment of the Executive Director's Circle, the Honors College Enrichment Society provided support for educational and cultural enrichment for the students in Tarleton's two honors programs and, indirectly, for the entire university community. The Executive Director's Circle has replaced the Enrichment Society, effective October 2016.
