Stories & Impact

The University of Arizona (UA) is a place without limits—where teaching, research, service, and innovation merge to improve lives in Arizona and beyond. We aren't afraid to ask bigger questions to get better answers. As a leading-edge public research university, we're inspired to explore humanity's most fundamental questions—about science, medicine, the arts, and business.

Our faculty includes members of esteemed national academies, Pulitzer and Nobel Prize winners, White House Champions of Change and celebrated thought leaders in numerous disciplines. We are leading projects that will change how we see the world, such as the OSIRIS-REx mission, which will scoop samples from a near-Earth asteroid in 2020. You can see our impact stretches beyond our borders, country, and the world.
