The University of Arizona (UA) is a public university where teaching, research, service, and innovation merge to improve lives in Arizona and beyond. Established in 1885, the UA, the state's super land-grant university with two medical schools, produces graduates who are real-world ready to take on today's most pressing challenges.
Recognized as a global leader in research, the UA brings in more than $580 million in research investments each year and ranks 20th among all public universities for research expenditures. The UA is leading the OSIRIS-REx asteroid-sample-return mission, addressing a global hunger crisis, developing sustainable technologies for arid regions, and so much more through its research initiatives.
The UA is the state's only member of the Association of American Universities, an exclusive, invitation-only collection of 62 of the leading public and private research universities in the U.S. and Canada. The UA benefits the state with an estimated economic impact of $8.3 billion annually. In 2016, the UA was named the Best College in Arizona by Forbes and the No. 1 public university in Arizona by the U.S. News & World Report.
