Campus Connections

In harmony with Faculty Affairs’ mission and vision, and our belief that a humanistic approach to faculty activity will foster excellence, equity, and impact, we organize an annual faculty community connection series. This series created for UArizona faculty, supports faculty community building, staying connected and networking in an inclusive, culturally relevant, family friendly environment.
