Welcome! ¡Bienvenidos!

The University of Arizona is the first four-year public university in the state of Arizona to be federally recognized as a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI)

As a research intensive land-grant HSI, the University of Arizona is committed to responsively meeting the educational needs of our vibrant and increasingly diverse communities of Arizona.

A Message from the Assistant Vice Provost for HSI Initiatives

HSI Initiatives touches every facet of the UA, from outreach efforts with our K-20 partners, to our faculty and staff hiring practices, to how we teach and engage students, to our alumni engagement efforts and connection to the community, and everything between!    

I invite you to learn more about the UA’s HSI Initiatives and encourage you to partner with us to connect your work to these critically important efforts. We’re in this together!

A Message from the University of Arizona President Dr. Robbins

In 2019, the UA was among nine higher education institutions to receive the inaugural Seal of Excelencia, aimed at recognizing institutions that demonstrate intentional impact and success in the three core areas of work that Excelencia has determined lead to Latino student success: data, practice, and leadership.

We respectfully acknowledge the University of Arizona is on the land and territories of Indigenous peoples. Today, Arizona is home to 22 federally recognized tribes, with Tucson being home to the O’odham and the Yaqui. Committed to diversity and inclusion, the University strives to build sustainable relationships with sovereign Native Nations and Indigenous communities through education offerings, partnerships, and community service.
