THE W.A. FRANKE HONORS COLLEGE
In recognition of a $25 million gift commitment made by William A. "Bill" Franke, his wife, Carolyn, and the Franke family, the University of Arizona Honors College is now the W.A. Franke Honors College.
The gift benefits students and faculty with a focus on access to education, student study abroad and faculty excellence.
