Watch President Robert C. Robbins' Conversation with Brent White, Vice Provost for Global Affairs, Dean of Global Locations
On May 4, 2020, the University of Arizona launched the University of Arizona Global Direct.
By partnering with top universities to provide an education to international students, UArizona created the world's largest network of global locations, offering access to a U.S. degree from 130+ locations in 34+ countries.
Now, students around the world who want to study and earn a degree from the University of Arizona may do so remotely, but still have an in-person community experience at partner campuses. Students can also live and study in purpose-built residential communities through a partnership with GSA, a global leader in student accommodations. The vision of Global Direct is a way to reach millions of students where they are. So, while travel between world countries is restricted due to COVID-19, students do not need to suspend their ambitions to learn from a top research university like Arizona.
UArizona President Robert C. Robbins Robbins calls it "a big vision for the future of higher education." Hear Robbins' conversation with Vice Provost for Global Affairs, Dean of Global Locations, Brent White.
