Thanks to Pamela Coonan, Senior Director for Academic and Curricular Affairs, for the following announcement:
Our academic catalog was designed many years ago when online catalogs were new. While it served us well for many years, it had become increasingly challenging to maintain it in its current iteration. With this in mind, the Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs put together a task force from across campus to reimagine the catalog as a site where students, parents, and the larger community go to learn not only about our academic policies and academic degree programs, but also to learn about the wealth of academic opportunities and support services available to them. The task force worked closely with UITS Web Services team to bring this vision to fruition. It was a great collaborative effort and a privilege to work with both teams on this project.
The new website is available at catalog.arizona.edu. We have made improvements to the search feature. You’ll find the academic policies sortable by policy type, academic career level, or by alphabetical order, which should reduce the time it takes to find information. Since the current catalog will always be available at catalog.arizona.edu, you will no longer need to reset your internet browser bookmarks on a yearly basis.
We welcome your feedback as we continue to improve the website. Please visit the website and let us know what you think. Please email your suggestions or questions to Cindy Williams firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you’ll find the new catalog more user-friendly and comprehensive.
