The University of South Alabama Honors College is a diverse community of interdisciplinary excellence designed to stimulate the thinking and intellectual curiosity of highly motivated students. Here in Honors we challenge each other through discussion, research, creative scholarship, intercultural engagement and the arts so that together we create the feel of a small college environment in the midst of the opportunities provided by a large urban university.
Our graduates, equipped with this intensive education as well as a wide variety of additional learning experiences, are especially well-prepared for productive careers, committed citizenship and meaningful lives.

Sharing Stories: The Diversity, Ecology, and History of the Mobile-Tensaw Delta
Thanks to the support of a grant from the Alabama Humanities Foundation, The Honors
College at The University of South Alabama has collected oral histories from current
and former residents of the greater Mobile-Tensaw Delta, particularly Blakeley Bluff
in Spanish Fort. These narratives will be shared through a public conversation with
by way of this online conference. Our hope is not only to share stories and imbue curiosity, but also to create what philosopher Kwame Anthony Appiah calls an “endless shared conversation of friendship” that cultivates a foundation for social and cultural
understanding across our varied heritages, cultures, and experiences.
