Mission & Goals

"Enhancing the academic and personal development of the Honours Community by organizing divergent and high-quality events"  

 

Enhancing horizons is more than just social drinks and educational events, it's about building better experiences and expanding our community. We are an organization that, like the community we represent, is young, dynamic, and embodies the Honours spirit of striving further. As an Association, we have achieved great successes since our inception, however, there is still work to be done. That is because, for us, striving further is not only a buzzword, but a way of life.

 

We have now become the board that represents the entire Honours Community, a difficult, but at the same time intriguing responsibility. In order to realize the potential of the Association, the following strategic goals have been set for the future, and the academic year of 2018-2019 in particular:

  • Enlarging the Honours Community itself by expanding the active positions to be fulfilled within the Association and increasing the overall member retention rate;
  • A balanced portfolio of social academic, and corporate events;
  • Organizing at least one value-adding event for every disciplinary Honours Programme;
  • One flagship event to celebrate the Association's 10th anniversary and to put the name of our association on the map;
  • An international field trip to a widely known organization in a culturally rich city.

 

We believe that these strategic goals are in line with our motto to always "strive further". Nonetheless, they are also realistic and challenging targets for us to work towards during our board year. In the end, we envisage to build a thriving community of thinkers, challengers, and doers, and we look forward to collaborating with our members to enable that dreams become reality.
