UA Strategic Plan and Updates

The University of Arizona’s Never Settle plan embodies an ambitious vision to tackle grand challenges at home and around the world. Students learn to integrate and apply new knowledge and graduate real-world-ready. UA faculty uncover new ways of knowing through unprecedented interdisciplinary collaboration. And as the university reaches for the full measure of its super land grant mission, Arizona and the global community benefit from novel partnerships that share knowledge and enhance quality of life. With an unrelenting approach to teaching, research, and service, UA’s commitment is to ask bigger questions and find better answers.

Operational and Financial Review 
As part of its constitutional responsibility to ensure that Arizona’s public universities accomplish their public purpose and mission, the Arizona Board of Regents conducts an annual comprehensive review of the operations and finances of each university. Two components of that review are the background report and the business plan.

The background report includes short narratives, several schedules populated by data obtained from the board’s business intelligence database, the financial aid report, other financial data, additional board annual reports and university provided financial projections.

The business plan:

  • contains an overview of the university’s operations and financial strategies
  • explains what the university intends to achieve, recognizing the current competitive conditions and environment;
  • details the major initiatives that will be deployed;
  • identifies the personnel and financial resource commitment it will take to achieve those initiatives;
