The mission of the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College (SMBHC) is to attract a diverse body of high-performing students to The University of Mississippi and provide them a vibrant center of academic excellence to help them become outstanding in their fields and citizen-scholars of their communities and the world. Founded in 1997 through a gift from Jim and Sally Barksdale, the Honors College is designed for highly motivated students who thrive in small classes and seminars that emphasize reading, writing, and discussion.
