Community Outreach

Community Relations provides support to the community through three campus-wide charitable programs:

  • UA Cares is The University of Arizona’s annual workplace giving campaign, offering University employees the opportunity to donate to any University programs through the UA Foundation, and to any non-profit agencies through the United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona. (
  • UA4Food brings together the University family including faculty, staff, students, and local merchants to raise food and monetary donations supporting the Community Food Bank’s Child Hunger & Nutrition Programs. (
  • The Diversity Community Councils collaborate with University of Arizona leadership to support the UA’s diversity priorities. The councils work to promote diversity, inclusion and shared decision-making, as well as emphasize diversity in every aspect of our institutional culture, reinforcing the core values of the university's 2013-2018 Never Settle Plan.
