University Honors Program

The Honors project is potentially the most valuable component of an Honors education. Typically Honors students choose to do their projects in their area of study, but some will pick a topic of interest unrelated to their major.

The Honors Program requires that the project be presented at a poster presentation event. Poster presentations are held each semester. Most students present during their senior year, but may do so earlier if their honors project has been completed.

This site presents project descriptions and selected posters for Honors projects completed since the Fall 2015 semester.

Abstract
Based on previous research, the LGBTQ community faces financial barriers. Using academic research, I conducted a database search to analysis the academic literature on discrimination in the financial services industry based on sexual orientation and gender identity. A significant amount of academic research was identified related to LGBTQ discrimination in mortgage lending and health insurance. The literature analysis discusses mortgage lending discrimination and relevant laws, along with the impact of the federal legalization of same-sex marriage and the implementation of the Affordable Care Act on health insurance for the LGBTQ community. The analysis suggests that the LGBTQ population in the US experience discrimination in mortgage lending and health insurance. These findings should justify further research on LGBTQ people’s experiences within the financial services industry.
