High Impact Educational Practices

Our global engagement opportunities will challenge you to make informed choices about the world around you and your place in it.

Act on your studies and research to solve issues of global concern

The Reaud Honors College works carefully with chosen partners to present you with experiences unique to Lamar University undergraduates that allow you to expand your worldview of critical issues in education, governance, health, environment, economics, imagination and sustainability.

To further your academic, professional, and personal development, you will participate in at least one High Impact Educational Practice (HIEP), giving you an edge after you graduate.

Our college will connect you and your innovative ideas with organizations and individuals who help you rethink relationships, identify common ground, challenge long-held assumptions and redefine priorities.

Take advantage of your HIEP opportunities and be better positioned to

  • Master the ability to reinvent yourself
  • Acknowledge the challenges ahead
