Community

The Gateway to Inspiration

Whether it’s the towering mountain vistas, the otherworldly desert landscapes, or the vibrant arts scene, Tucson is sure to fill you with inspiration. Often referred to as a “small town within a city,” Tucson possesses a supportive community that expresses the values of sustainability and diversity, both of culture and thought. As a result, the city is host to a number of innovative projects in a variety of disciplines that seek to tackle some of our most pressing problems. The University of Arizona plays an outsize role in engaging the community to create a more equitable future for everyone.
