The Robert D. Clark Honors College is a small liberal arts college that is part of the University of Oregon in Eugene, Oregon, United States. Founded in 1960, it is the oldest honors college in the United States.[1] Its namesake, Robert D. Clark, was a president of the university, and key contributor to the founding of the honors college. The college is located in Chapman Hall on the University of Oregon campus.

The program was open to the top 30 percent of the class, and consisted of special readings under professors in students' major departments. In addition, the program concluded in the senior year with an honors thesis and examination. Frank Aydelotte, president of Swarthmore College introduced such programs into the United States following his own undergraduate experience as an honors student at Oxford University. In the 1950s, the University's Curricular Review Committee addressed again the honors program offerings. They created the Sophomore Honors Program, which would eventually morph into the Clark Honors College as it exists today. Robert D. Clark, the college's namesake, was a member of the Curricular Review Committee. Since university faculty were concerned that the new program would take away their best students, the Committee developed a compromise: students would remain in their major departments, and take only selected general requirements in the Sophomore Honors Program. Clark was troubled by the program's initial failure, and attributed it to the lack of unity in the University's Sophomore and departmental honors programs. Inspired by Knight Dunlap's books on community, Clark created the Honors College during his tenure as University President. The original home of the Honors College was in the basement of Friendly Hall. The College moved to its current location in Chapman Hall during the 1980s. Courses The Clark Honors College offers its own freshman literature and history series, replacing the University's general requirements. In addition, honors college students are required to participate in several colloquia, which focus on specific academic fields, and are taught by both honors college professors and experts from other university departments. Students complete a thesis in their major area during the senior year as part of the college's graduation requirements. All classes are limited to 25 or fewer students, making them stand out from other lower-division courses offered by the university that frequently enroll 100 or more students. Students Admission to the college is highly competitive. For Fall 2010 Term, 1202 students applied and 205 students entered. The mean GPA of admitted students was 3.84, and the mean SAT score was 1302.[2] Students in the Clark Honors College pursue majors in many different areas, throughout all of the University's colleges and professional schools. As of 2005, the Honors College student body consisted of: 2.89% Architecture majors, 4.77% Business majors, 0.58% Education majors, 21.68% Humanities majors, 3.90% Journalism majors, 2.75% Music (and Dance) majors, 24.57% Science majors, 16.62% Social Science majors, and 16.23% of students were undeclared.[citation needed] See also Henry Alley, Professor Emeritus and author References ^ Honor Programs & Colleges, 4th ed.
