A Message from Interim Chief Academic Officer

Welcome to the Office of Academic Affairs at the University of Arizona Global Campus (UAGC)! We are excited that you are joining our community. Your addition to our team enhances our ability to remain focused on our two-fold academic mission: delivering a quality online academic experience as well as exemplary service to our students who entrust our institution with their academic experience. We will continue to forge ahead as one team strengthening our university with a single mission: striving to empower, support, enrich and graduate every student.

UAGC is part of a higher education community that continually seeks solutions that remediate the inequities in systems and structures that inhibit student access to learning opportunities. We believe that such solutions begin with a commitment from this Academic Affairs team to understanding the whole student, including the intersections of their expectations, goals, lived experiences, skills, and life demands. We validate the individuality of each student–knowing that a diversity of thought and experiences contributes to a rich community of learning and engaged citizenship.

In addition to focalizing access to education, Academic Affairs has been the catalyst for the Culture of Care at UAGC and is committed to furthering that mission of dedication to our students. This UAGC-pervasive culture is defined by compassion, inclusivity, and continuous effort to ensure members of our community feel safe and supported; we strive to foster their intellectual curiosity and secure the attainment of their learning goals. Because we serve students who may be disproportionately affected by challenges related to poverty, social injustices, and systemic untruths that may collapse social capital, sense of belonging, and self-efficacy, we strive to provide our learners with the resources and care to facilitate their persistence to meet their goals.

Driven by Academic Affairs and the common mission, vision, and purpose, we uphold the following goals and strategies. We seek to:

  • RETAIN students during their first year of enrollment 
  • Support COMPLETION of programs and educational goals driven by student-based timelines 
  • Enhance students’ ECONOMIC RETURN 

We invite our students, colleagues, and communities to join our institution that as a public good, seeks to innovate the educational system to more ethically and equitably equip learners to persist in pursuing their life goals.

Culture of Care

The Culture of Care is not an arbitrary sign hanging on a wall. It is the engine that drives our work and relationships in Academic Affairs. The UAGC culture prizes academic challenge, holistic learning and personal development, and unconditional support for our students — anchored in an ethic of care and accountability. UAGC is committed to upholding an institutional Culture of Care, which is defined by our compassion, inclusivity, and continuous effort to ensure community members feel safe and supported.

Each of us contributes to this culture of student care. Because we serve students disproportionately affected by challenges and struggles, we know the importance of staying strong and present to ensure we’re giving them our best selves to help them become their best selves. We encourage the UAGC community to come together during difficult times and listen to and reflect on understanding each other. Above all, be kind and practice mutual respect. We are always stronger together. We encourage faculty to harness the resources for individual development aligned with the Culture of Care institutional initiative.

Driven by UAGC’s common mission, vision, and purpose, 

Culture of Care

Positive. Authentic. Determined.
