Greetings to Alumni from New UA President

I am thrilled to be here at the University of Arizona. I have received such a warm welcome from the campus and Tucson community. From an open house at Old Main on my first day, to lunch with students in the Union, and a stop at UA Health Sciences to wish our medical school transition students good luck on their finals, this is just the beginning.

The University has a legacy of creating big ideas and finding big solutions. With our history as a flagship institution of national stature, we are well-positioned to be leaders in a rapidly changing world. It’s the talent and persistence of faculty, staff, students and alumni that make the UA a world-class institution. I am eager to learn more about as many of you as possible at upcoming alumni and community events.
 
I have always strived to meet challenges in my life. When I look at what the University has accomplished while addressing its own challenges, I know I am in the right place. But I still have a lot to learn about the UA. I look forward to working with you to create business and community partnerships in Arizona and around the world.
 
Thank you for your commitment to the University of Arizona. Together, I hope we can continue to provide leadership, service and innovation in our communities.

Most sincerely,
 
Robert C. Robbins
President
The University of Arizona
