UA Statement on Proposed Budget by Gov. Ducey

TUCSON, Ariz. — Gov. Doug Ducey’s proposed budget recognizes the value of education in Arizona. We commend his proposal to invest an additional $35 million for Arizona’s public universities, and I look forward to working with the governor to ensure our legislators are aware of the important work being done at the University of Arizona.

We’re also encouraged that the governor is proposing significant investments for teachers and the K-12 system. When the state invests in education, it creates more opportunities for all of us in Arizona.

Robert C. Robbins
President
University of Arizona
