Driving Student Success

Help us renovate and re-imagine our library spaces.

We envision the Main and Science-Engineering Libraries as the heart of student success on campus.

These two libraries remain go-to places for students to study, collaborate, and get things done. Yet when we talk with students, we find we're not reaching our potential. Students want more comfortable and flexible collaboration spaces as well as quiet areas, access to cutting-edge technologies for hands-on learning, and outdoor study spaces to enjoy Tucson's beauty and fresh air. We also want to prepare students for the modern workplace, which relies more than ever on teamwork and technological expertise.

Our recent successes include a collaborative learning space for active learning in large-scale undergrad courses, as well as an innovation space for bringing ideas to life through experimentation and technology.

Now, we've forged a unique partnership with Student Affairs & Enrollment Management/Academic Initiatives & Student Success to provide an array of integrated, innovative spaces and services in the heart of campus to optimize student success. Renovations to the Main Library, Bear Down Gym, and Science-Engineering Library will provide students with new technologies, reconfigured furniture, and enhanced, modernized spaces.

Your gift will benefit UA students and faculty for years to come through:

  • Collaborative, flexible learning spaces

  • Experiential learning tools

  • Cutting-edge tech labs & services

  • Indoor/outdoor collaboration areas

  • Quiet spaces for individual study

  • Integrated library & classroom spaces
