Please join the University of Arizona for a tribute to the life of Henry Koffler, the first alumnus president of the University of Arizona. He died in March at the age of 95.
His 9-year tenure, from 1982-1991, saw increases in enrollment, the number of faculty and staff, and research expenditures. Under Koffler, the UA was elected to membership in the Association of American Universities, which is comprised of the top 62 research universities in the U.S. and Canada. Additionally, Koffler led the Century II Capital Campaign, the UA's first major fundraising activity, with a goal of $100 million. The campaign yielded $198 million. Koffler also is recognized for his contributions to expanding the general education and honors programs, implementing the first online student information system and investing in central computing capacity, facilitating collaborations with community colleges and championing efforts to improve the enrollment rates and graduation rates of underserved students.
