Campus Connection Series

In harmony with the Faculty Affairs’ mission and vision, and our belief that a humanistic approach to faculty activity will foster excellence, equity, and impact, we have organized an annual faculty community connection series. This series was created for UArizona new faculty, those who have been hired within the past 3 academic years. The series supports faculty community building, staying connected and networking in an inclusive, culturally relevant,  and family friendly environment.
