When they graduate, we want them to be fully prepared to take on the challenges and opportunities ahead," UA President Ann Weaver Hart said in a recent release.

"We also need to continue bringing the best minds to the UA to conduct research and teach future generations, and we need to build more partnerships that can help us extend what we're doing here for the benefit of the state, the nation and the world. This campaign will enable us to do that. It will push us to a new level of excellence."

The Never Settle strategic plan is based on four pillars - engaging, innovating, partnering and synergy, it is designed to advance the UAs 21st century land-grant mission as well as help boost the state's economy and provide quality graduates who possess real-world experience.
