President's Message Craig D. Swenson, Ph.D.
Synergy occurs when the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. For me, the recently announced affiliation of the University of Arizona Global Campus (UAGC) with the University of Arizona embodies the meaning of that term. It represents a bold response to the dramatic changes taking place in our higher education environment. It also signals the birth of an exciting new era for UAGC's students, faculty, and staff.
This alliance brings together one of our nation's premier research and teaching universities with one of its most innovative online institutions. The affiliation will enhance the ability of both University of Arizona and UAGC to serve expanded segments of the population - and to better serve the evolving educational needs of students in ways that best meet their individual needs. It builds on the spirit of innovation that is central to the legacy of both institutions.
