Historical Note

In June 1946, the Proposed Plan for Awarding Honors called for the establishment of a Committee on Honors at Woman's College (now UNCG). The school's first "Plan for Honors Work" was written in 1947, focused on honors work for seniors. In Spring 1962, the Honors Work Committee successfully proposed establishment of an Honors Program. During the 1962-1963 academic year, the University officially extended its Honors Program from departmental study understaken only by seniors to students in all undergraduate years.

In the 2004-2005 academic year, the Honors Program was renamed the International Honors College. The following year, it was renamed the Lloyd International Honors College after receiving a gift from Rebecca A. Lloyd, a 1950 graduate of Woman's College and a U.S. Navy veteran. The Llyod International Honors College opened its first honors residence hall in the fall of 2010 in North Spencer Hall.
