The Office of University Initiatives manages and implements high-priority projects for the University. The University’s core values of Integrity, Compassion, Exploration, Adaptation, Inclusion, and Determination are foundational to our work. We partner with shared governance bodies and diverse constituencies across campus to advance the University’s purpose and mission through our projects and initiatives.

President's Postdoctoral Fellowship

The University of Arizona offers postdoctoral research fellowships in all fields, coupled with faculty mentoring, professional development, and academic networking opportunities. These presidential postdoctoral fellowships are an exceptional opportunity to recruit potential new faculty to the University whose research, teaching, and service will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity at UArizona.


Pronouns in the Phonebook

We are delighted to share that pronouns will appear with contact records in the University’s Phonebook beginning October 26, 2021. Using someone’s correct pronouns, which are frequently used in place of people’s names, shows respect and aligns with the University’s core values of inclusion and compassion.
