New to the University?

Candidates for employment who are new to Tucson or the University are encouraged to connect with any groups they identify with to learn more about these campus communities. 
Search committees may offer to arrange informal meetings for finalists with affinity groups with whom they would like to meet. Search committees may also share this link with finalists so they may contact groups directly, if they prefer. It is important to not make assumptions about which groups finalists might be interested in. Please assure finalists these meetings are not part of the formal evaluation or interview process.
