We encourage our students to travel and study in other countries and to intern with top companies and in the public service sector. My reward will be to see these young people become more productive, more vital and more involved in the greater good of our society than would have been possible without the Honors College.

The Robert E Cook Honors College at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) wants its students to have every chance to excel and goes to great lengths to help students. One example of this philanthropy is through the Cook Enhancement fund provided by benefactor Robert Cook for whom the college is named
“One of the things we do is help young people to raise their sights, to aim higher and to achieve the very best that is in them. Our job is not to tell the student how to plan his or her life. Our job is to provide the tools to allow the students to transform the way they think, reason and react to intellectual stimuli. Part of that experience is to extend their personal horizons beyond what they have known,” explains Robert Cook. “We encourage our students to travel and study in other countries and to intern with top companies and in the public service sector. My reward will be to see these young people become more productive, more vital and more involved in the greater good of our society than would have been possible without the Honors College.”
