On February 14, 1912, Arizona became the 48th state and the last of the contiguous states to be admitted to the United States of America. But the lens through which we look at Arizona goes back much further than 100 years and as well peers forward to the years ahead.
The Colleges of Letters, Arts and Science invite you to explore with us Arizona’s rich history and its promise for the future.
In January 2012 we embark upon a journey of reflection and discovery in Southern Arizona venues from Tumamoc Hill to the Tucson Scottish Rite Cathedral, from San Xavier del Bac to the UA Poetry Center, in activities and events that encompass our cultural heritage and showcase the diversity of people and places that make us what we are.
Our exploration culminates with Arizona 100: A Celebration on Saturday, February 11, 2012, as the community comes together in Centennial Hall on the university campus for a multifaceted view of our past, present and future.
Sponsored with generous support from the University of Arizona’s offices of the President, Provost and Vice President for Research and by Confluence: Center for Creative Inquiry, join us as the University of Arizona celebrates Arizona – 100 and Counting!
