Fuel Wonder at the W.A. Franke Honors College

Fuel Wonder Campaign Mark





The W.A. Franke Honors College is at the core of pushing bold ideas forward. By investing in our students, faculty, and programs, we amplify the unique university ecosystem that makes innovation possible. Currently, there are faculty members who cannot push their ideas further without support. There are students who do not receive the support that they need to fully focus on their studies. There are programs that could do more if only they had the means to do it. Reaching our College's $48 million goal will fill these gaps and enable all Franke Honors Wildcats to fuel their wonder.


We seek. We connect. We create. We evolve. We celebrate.

These values are a promise to our students, and the way we follow through on that promise is by offering opportunities for them to explore—to embrace their curious natures and discover their passions through experiential learning, design, and innovation.

For highly motivated undergraduates, the Franke Honors College adds rich dimension to one of the world’s top research universities. A dynamic space for interdisciplinary thinking on campus, Franke Honors’ community values and graduation requirements prompt students to ask and answer bold questions about our ever-changing world. Franke Honors is a great example of the university’s mission, blending the benefits of interdisciplinary thinking and self-discovery. Ultimately, our mission is to empower each student to reveal and pursue their passion with a deeper sense of wonder and purpose.

By investing in the Franke Honors College, you invest in students with the promise and potential to contribute toward solving some of society’s timely and timeless problems.

There are a variety of 100% tax-deductible options available to donors, depending on your individual needs and wishes.
