UA Changes to UArizona

We are changing how we refer to the University of Arizona in headlines and on second reference. We are adopting the use of UArizona to distinguish the University of Arizona from several other national and international entities that use the abbreviation UA, which will assist us with search engine optimization (SEO).
We will begin making the change in our news releases this week. We hope you will consider adopting this change in order to improve your SEO, as well.
Please reach out to me if you have questions or concerns.

Thank you,
