OUR VALUES

ADAPTATION

Stay open-minded and eager for what's next.

Adaptation requires us to embrace change and be open to alternative ways of doing things. Sustainability and climate action require us to completely reimagine systems within society to ensure our ability to meet our needs and those of future generations. It is critical that today’s students develop the skills necessary to be adaptive in a world that is changing more quickly than we can comprehend.

OUR COMMITMENT TO ADAPTATION

Adaptation shows up at the University of Arizona across every aspect of work and life. It’s the mindset behind innovative thinking and learning during a global pandemic. And it’s our foundation for approaching today’s toughest challenges in a 4th industrial world—from sustainable built environments, food and water security to health equity and the future of medicine.
