The Honors College

at the University of Houston

The Honors College creates a community to serve the University of Houston’s finest students. Open to all majors, the Honors College curriculum complements all degree plans offered at the University of Houston. With fewer than 600 students admitted annually, the Honors College is able to devote significant resources aimed at making each student’s college experience unique.

Model Arab League Competition

Houston, Texas

Annual competition hosted in February for college students

Every February, the Bilateral Chamber hosts the annual Bilateral Model Arab League (BiMAL), a student leadership development program in partnership with the National Council on U.S. Arab Relations. The Honors College at the University of Houston's students have participated every year since 2009, and have graciously hosted the competition on several occasions. 

To learn how you can support this educational initiative or to participate, please contact or visit the Model Arab League page for more information.  

The Bilateral Chamber is committed to global engagement and the promotion of the leadership, visibility, and participation of youth in international affairs. 

The relationship between the Honors College at the University of Houston (Honors) and the Bilateral Chamber of Commerce is one that mutually serves the Houston community, the chamber, Honors students, and the University of Houston. 

Honors students work as part of the Bilateral Chamber internship team and are given the opportunity to improve their knowledge of international economic, political, and cultural issues, while also gaining knowledge of how a small nonprofit organization operates. 

Interns have the opportunity to meet accomplished leaders, international affairs experts, and business development professionals who can help guide their career paths.

This opportunity gives students the means to use and grow their practical experience in a professional working environment. 

Students will be engaged in projects that will inspire them to enhance their critical thinking, problem-solving and collaborative skills, while simultaneously gaining insight from, and exposure to, senior public and private sector leaders from the United States and around the world.
