100% Engagement Experiences

The 100% Engagement Initiative at the University of Arizona is based on our recognition that experiences beyond the classroom provide a framework for our students to enrich their professional and personal growth, and the importance of those experiences is reflected by an Engaged Learning Notation on our students' transcripts.

The Office of Global Initiatives believes very strongly that engagement, and particularly global engagement is a vital piece of your college experience. 

We have developed three very unique engagement opportunities.

  • Tech.Global - As employees of Global Initiatives, students will join our agile team of coders and learn in-demand skills including JavaScript, PHP, C#.Net, SQL, UX Design, GIS and data visualization.
  • The UA Refugee ProjectThe UA Refugee Engagement Project will provide UA students the opportunity to gain or build on their existing intercultural competency and skills by volunteering with Tucson-based agencies supporting the resettlement process for the approximately 800 refugees who settle in Tucson each year.
  • Global Ambassador ProgramThe UA Global Ambassador Program is a leadership program for UA students who are interested in bridging cultures between American and international students and serving as ambassadors for the international and global community on campus.

Additionally, many courses offered through UA Study Abroad count as engagement experiences.
