The W.A. Franke Honors Alternative Spring Break (HASB) is an opportunity to engage in service while learning about real community issues and contributing to problem-solving.
The HASB has been put on pause for spring 2024 as we roll out a new spring break study away program.
Learn more about that program here.
The HASB service experience is paired with a 2-unit Spring course designed to inspire lifelong civic engagement through an enriched understanding of diverse perspectives on complex societal issues by interacting with a diverse range of participants and community members. The course meets Mondays from 3:30 - 4:30pm in the Honors Village for the entirety of the Spring semester. The HASB service experience will take place during a portion of the UArizona Spring break.
