Who are we?

The Arvind and Nandlal Chandan Kilachand Honors College was founded in 2011 by a record gift of $25 million generously given by Boston University Trustee Rajen Kilachand. This was followed by another gift of $10 million in 2012 to provide a residence, Kilachand Hall, for the College’s students.

Kilachand Honors College offers a challenging liberal education grounded in exploration, discovery, and the real-world application of knowledge. Kilachand provides its students with an integrated, four-year curriculum that includes experiential and team learning opportunities, to be completed alongside the courses required by their majors. The Kilachand curriculum, through rigorous courses and enrichment experiences, asks students to use the tools and methods of every academic discipline to understand global challenges and develop practical solutions.
