Honors Student Association

HSA Olympiad

The Honors Student Association (HSA), previously known as the Honors Student Advisory Council (HSAC), has acted for many years as the student voice of the Honors College/Program. HSA serves as a liaison among students, faculty, and administration, and aims to promote the standards of service, leadership, and community among college students. HSA members understand the importance of the Honors College and how it makes students competitive nationally with schools all over the country. Every year, HSA sponsors many events open to every UNM student with the purpose of expanding and recruiting prospective students into the program as well as aiming to strengthen academic life and the Honors community on campus.

Expectations of Members

HSA expects all members to hold themselves to a high standard, as HSA represents the Honors community on campus. The requirements for membership include that students be in good academic standing and have a desire to actively participate in HSA. Interested students must submit an application, which will be reviewed by HSA Officers. Applicants will be evaluated based on what they can provide to the organization.

Admission Procedure

An applicant will be granted membership after his or her application has been reviewed by HSA members and executive officers. Admission will be granted to those applicants approved by a majority vote of the active members at the beginning of the following general meeting.

Neither membership in nor services provided by the organization will be denied to anyone on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, physical or mental handicap, age, sex, sexual preference, ancestry, or medical condition. Any student in the Honors College is welcome to apply.

Applications are available at meetings or students may request one at
