Dr. Robbins' Bio
We will strengthen existing relationships and build new collaborations to take the University of Arizona to even higher levels of achievement, working to solve the 21st century's most complex, global challenges.
—Dr. Robert C. Robbins
I am pleased to submit the University of Arizona's tuition and mandatory fees proposal for the 2019-2020 academic year. As a reminder, more than 99% of continuing undergraduate students will see a 0% increase in tuition and mandatory fees for 2019-2020, due to their enrollment in the tuition guarantee program.
Many of you have heard about the events involving representatives of the Border Patrol and University of Arizona students and employees who objected to the officers’ presence on campus. There have been many opinions expressed about those interactions, involving campus safety, freedom of expression and respect for others. I want the UA campus community to know where I stand.
Free speech is essential in sustaining a democratic society, and it is equally important in providing an exceptional university education. Our mission is one of service, and fundamental to its success is ensuring that all of our students and faculty practice and promote principles of freedom of expression and inquiry.
The UA's support of free speech received the highest recognition for the protection of free expression from the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education.
I reach out with the sad news that Karl Eller passed away yesterday. The University of Arizona has lost an alumnus, advocate and supporter of national stature. His decades of leadership and philanthropy have been nothing short of transformative.
I am excited to have Andrew Schulz, Dean of the College of Fine Arts, as the inaugural Vice President for the Arts.
