UHC opportunities extend beyond formal coursework to experiences and activities that cultivate students’ academic interests within a social, student-driven setting.
UHC-PC (UHC-Programming Grants)
The UHC encourages students to develop the kinds of programs that they want to complement their academic experience at Pitt. To embrace the individual ideas and potential of an expanding honors community, UHC-PG (UHC-Programming Grants) offers undergraduate students the resources and support to develop educationally enriching, value-added programming that directly relates to the UHC’s mission and values. Students can request funds to create everything from special events with faculty to semester-long discussion and reading groups that explore topics that interest students most.

The UHC sponsors a number of student publications, each of which has a different focus; from the creative nonfiction of Collision to the political commentary of the Pitt Political Review, there’s something for everyone. The Three Rivers Review provides a forum for traditional undergraduate literature, and the Pittsburgh Undergraduate Review is a professionally-reviewed journal of analytical and scholarly essays. The publications are completely student-run. Students interested in any of the publications should contact the appropriate editor to see how they can get involved.
The 35th and 36th Floor Student Space
We encourage all Pitt students, faculty, and staff to come to the UHC’s space on the 35th and 36th floor of the Cathedral of Learning. Our facilities include a large central meeting area that usually is open for student use as well as a seminar room and a reading room. Students are also welcome to come to our 35th floor cafe to have a cup of coffee, meet with friends, or browse through our periodicals and books.
