The UA School of Journalism, in partnership with the Arizona Daily Star, launched a new class to train students on developing solution-oriented mobile apps. The course was established to respond to a growing demand for journalists with technical skills, while also training students to think about ways engage people on solutions on top of sharing information about community-based problems.
Beginning this fall, candidate UA students in the College of Education's elementary program will be required to commit to at least one home engagement with their elementary students. The requirement is meant to give the future teachers a unique opportunity to learn, firsthand, about the social and cultural backgrounds of their students to help improve in-class instruction and engagement.
Twenty-two UA students and alumni have been selected for the National Science Foundation's Graduate Research Fellowship Program, which provides substantial funding over a three-year period for graduate studies in STEM areas.
While working toward advanced degrees, UA graduate students are also producing new knowledge, marketing products, and forming companies that address significant challenges facing our state, nation and world.
UA senior Steven Palmer, who grew up watching “Wheel of Fortune,” recently earned a spot as a contestant on the popular game show. Palmer, who appeared on the show this week, took home $11,283 in cash and prizes, which included a trip for two to Hawaii.
