Zachary Hansen, ENV SP


President, DBIA Student Chapter
University of Arizona

Zachary Hansen has been a highly influential student leader in helping to strengthen the DBIA Student Chapter at the University of Arizona. He is currently the Chapter’s president, elected by his peers after helping navigate the challenges of a COVID environment last year. Zack has been instrumental in helping the chapter thrive even during a pandemic. In addition to the typical chapter meeting schedule, Zack helped leverage the virtual environment to coordinate joint chapter meetings with Arizona State University and a joint meeting with our ASCE chapter. He also helped promote webinars sponsored by DBIA Western Pacific Region, the DBIA Sacramento Chapter Young Professionals, and ASCE. Zack’s student leadership created opportunities to advance the understanding and use of design-build, despite the challenges.
