Ethel Waddell Githii Honors Program

Founded in 1980, the Spelman College Honors Program, named for scholar-teacher Ethel Waddell Githii, is interdisciplinary in design recognizing the diversity of our faculty expertise and student creative scholarship.  The Githii Honors Program creates original programming and targeted supports for our member students, and collaborates with academic departments and programs to provide a rich array of scholarly and creative venues.  These include our annual reading and lecture series, special programs and workshops for the broader campus and the Atlanta community, and cultural engagements on and beyond the campus. The Program spotlights intellectual leadership as a habit of mind and a quality of the ethical citizen.
