Focus on Environment and Ecology

Changing the world starts at home. At the University of Arizona, we are charting the course toward a more vibrant, resilient future.

Within the pages of this magazine, we offer glimpses into our mission in action. Read about steadfast, forward-thinking UArizona researchers and students who are mitigating the impacts of extreme heat; informing policymakers on how to reduce poverty and hunger with real-world, multipronged solutions; promoting Indigenous environmental scholarship and sovereignty; and even exploring how to build hardier, more adaptable coral reefs. Collectively, these stories illustrate our ability to convene great minds and tackle the most pressing, complex challenges of the 21st century.
