Connecting people through a passion for environment

Being Arizona's only land-grant university means that our connection to the community is deeper than just the land we occupy. The University of Arizona has a commitment to supporting, collaborating and working with the vibrant communities that make up Southern Arizona, especially when it comes to the stewardship of our environment.
