UA's Commitment to a Safe Working and Learning Environment

On Wednesday, February 22, 2017, the Department of Justice and the Department of Education rescinded federal guidelines specifying that transgender students have the right to use school restrooms that match their gender identity.

The University of Arizona has a long-held commitment to maintaining a safe working and learning environment for all members of our community, and that commitment has not changed. Central to the University’s core values is respect and appreciation for the diversity inherent in our campus community. We strive to ensure that everyone who comes to our campus feels safe, respected, and supported. Consistent with the University’s Nondiscrimination and Anti-harassment Policy that prohibits discrimination and harassment on the basis of gender identity, the University supports the option of individuals to use the restroom that meets their individual needs or in which they feel safest.

To that end, it is important to reiterate the University of Arizona’s Statement on Restroom Access.

2017 UA Minimum Wage Increase

You may know that most Arizona employers are increasing their minimum wage as a result of the recent passage of the Arizona Minimum Wage and Paid Time Off Initiative (Proposition 206). As a state agency, the University of Arizona is exempt from the new regulation, however we believe increasing compensation gives us a competitive advantage in attracting and retaining a quality workforce.

While we are committed to raising our minimum wage, we want to do so thoughtfully and strategically. Therefore we will raise our minimum wage from $8.05 to $10.00 per hour effective July 3, 2017. We believe this is a fiscally responsible approach that will give us time to build the increase into our FY18 budgets and planning.

Details about the minimum wage increase follow.
