York Engaged Scholars:
The Honors Program
of York College
The York Engaged Scholars is an Honors program with a difference. This program goes beyond Scholars’ academic success and applies that learning to what students actually can accomplish in the world around them—from Day One.
Based in principles of “human-centered design” (Design Thinking), the York Engaged Scholars program reflects York College’s commitment to community-based, hands-on learning and to being a strong resource for the community, its people, and its businesses and organizations. This group of Scholars and their mentors provide human-centered research and actions that take on the knotty problems and offer “new-to-the world” innovations that address those problems.
