MEMOS & MORE
Welcome to the start of a new academic year at the University of Arizona! I hope that you all had an enjoyable summer, and that you are ready for a wonderful year here at the University. We have had many promising developments for the UA and our community this summer, and many more to come over this year, and I would like to share a few with you.
Since my post in September on the future of the public research university, I have been thinking and writing about ways that the University of Arizona and our peers can position ourselves as agents of change in the world, rather than simply as points of access to knowledge and education.
A few months ago, I shared some of my thoughts on the ways that student learning and faculty research are intertwined at a research university like the UA.
