About Us

UANews is a service of the Office of Communications and the primary source of information and news about the University of Arizona.

Members of our office report and write about the people, programs, research and advances at the University of Arizona. This information is published daily on UANews and is available to readers around the world as well as to members of the media. Our office also produces UANow, an e-mail summary of the top UA news, which is sent every weekday morning.

UANews is also the home of the Master Calendar, the UA's most comprehensive listing of information on lectures, conferences, sports events, performances, exhibits, tours, academic dates, workshops, health activities, doctoral orals, professional development classes, camps, special events and more.
