Ten students in Southwest Baptist University’s Gordon & Judy Dutile Honors Program presented their Senior Honors Capstone Experience projects during the 2022-2023 academic year.
“These projects are excellent examples of the mission of the Dutile Honors Program – to challenge and support high-achieving students by fostering fierce curiosity, intellectual humility, thriving community, and holistic growth and development,” said Dr. Jordan Edwards, director of the Dutile Honors Program.
“The Honors Capstone allows each student to develop a self-directed course of study and work one-on-one with a faculty member to create a project that serves as a culmination of their entire undergraduate experience. These students have all done amazing and interesting work, and I am extremely proud of all of them.”
Students are admitted to the Dutile Honors Program before their freshman year through a competitive process. The program includes nine honors-specific courses designed to provide scholastic enrichment and opportunities for practical application and professional development; honors colloquium for sophom
ores and juniors; and the Senior Honors Capstone Experience that allows students to complete a project or research in the student’s field of study, including the integration of faith and discipline.
