University of Arizona

Across a wide range of disciplines, University of Arizona researchers are continually recognized as world-class for promoting scientific advancement and substantial contributions to their respective fields.

The UA is a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities, one of 62 leading public and private research universities in the United States and Canada, based on the level of research and academic programs.

UA has initiated specific grantsmanship and leadership programs to advance the success of our faculty with a particular focus last year on those early in their career. The university provided more workshops and training for its “next generation” faculty to be better positioned to win larger awards and deeper external partnerships. Those efforts are already seeing dividends with record early-career awards and honorifics.
