BOLIVAR, Mo. — Six students in Southwest Baptist University’s Gordon & Judy Dutile Honors Program presented their Senior Honors Capstone Experience projects during an open house Dec. 5.
Students are admitted to the 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 sophomores 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.
“Gordon & Judy Dutile Honors Program students are selected during admission to SBU based on their high school scholarship, service, and leadership, as well as a faculty interview and impromptu essay,” said Dr. Jodi Meadows, director of the Dutile Honors Program. “The honors program includes modified general education coursework, as well as honors colloquia and capstone experiences.
“The mission of the program is to support and challenge high-ability students by fostering fierce curiosity, dynamic community, and holistic growth and achievement.”

The Dutile Honors Program started during the fall 2005 semester, with more than 147 students having completed the program.
