The Fran Coulter Honors Program was approved by the Board of Trustees of Arkansas State University in December 2003, with the program being implemented in Fall 2005.


The Fran Coulter Honors Program was created as a vehicle to recognize academic excellence and to provide courses to challenge highly-motivated, intellectually-talented, academically well-prepared, and/or creative students. An addition purpose is to enhance the image of the community college as a place associated with quality scholarly pursuits and activities.

Through participation in the program, students are encouraged to develop their full potential in leadership and scholarship through a variety of educational activities by working with a select group of dedicated faculty, but within and outside of the classroom setting, and through interaction with other honors program students.
