11 11 Goal: Help young children prepare for school & life. UTWSA Community Development team is collaborating with College of Education. The goal is to strengthen collaborative efforts between University of Arizona and United Way through “Read on Tucson” with the ideal of improving Third Grade reading scores. Dean Ronald Marx and select faculty have agreed to create a recurring conversation to idea and resource share. We established a partnership and are funding them through the First Things First grant to provide parenting education to fathers and grandparents in Pima County through 2015.

Accounting undergrads spent over 140 hours processing tax refunds for Tucsonans in need through a partnership with United Way and the IRS’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. The Accounting Student Association has participated in the VITA program for many years, but the number of volunteers exploded in 2013.

United Way participates in and has served as a $1,000 sponsor of the Institute’s Arizona Financial Face-Off. Income Eller College, Take Charge Institute & United Way

It releases endorphins that make us happy. Giving also translates to lower costs and turnover rates.” ~ UA Researcher Nathan Podsakoff “All of us (students, staff & faculty) who live or work at a great university like University of Arizona should be involved in the community.” ~ Dr. Ann Weaver Hart
