Forging the Future: A History of the John Martinson Honors College, 2013–2023 is the story of a collaborative effort to build a visionary place: an academic-residential college that would bring together students from across disciplines and differences to rethink the goals and practices of a college education. Designed to be a hub for interdisciplinary learning and innovative pedagogy at Purdue University and a national leader in honors education, the John Martinson Honors College (JMHC) was first and foremost a dream of the future. How that collective dream took shape—from the first, speculative discussions of a college to the literal construction of its buildings and the arrival of its students—is a tale researched, written, and published by the students and alumni of the JMHC. Part institutional history, part biography of a place and its people, Forging the Future is a record of what hope and imagination can accomplish in ten years.
