The University of Arizona Washington, D.C. Center for Outreach & Collaboration

The Washington, D.C. Center for Outreach & Collaboration was established to inform and convene leading experts from around the world and extend the impact of UA research and scholarship.

Here, we will lead imaginative collaborations to create a world where human potential is realized and by working together to create solutions to big problems, so that life in our communities, in Arizona and on our planet can thrive.
