Campus Security Update: PAX Group Report
Almost five months ago, the University of Arizona community suffered a profound loss with the tragic death of Professor Thomas Meixner, Chair of our Department of Hydrology and Atmospheric Sciences. Very soon after his passing, I committed to a full, independent review of the facts and circumstances leading up to October 5th. To fulfill our commitment, the University retained PAX Group, LLC, national experts in campus security, to examine the events leading up to Dr. Meixner’s death and to provide us with a comprehensive review of our campus safety and security. The PAX Group delivered that report to me Friday.
Continuing to Invest in our Workforce
I am pleased to share that in the new fiscal year (starting July 1, 2023) the University will sustain ongoing efforts to retain its talented workforce and recruit competitively, while ensuring sound stewardship of our finances in a changing labor market.
