Regents and ABOR President Klein engaged with business, community and philanthropic leaders as well as legislators and policy makers to share news and updates and well as challenges and opportunities of Arizona’s public universities.

Through keynote speeches, panel discussions and remarks at community events to strategic group meetings, the board continues to inform leaders and the community to garner and advance support.

Through a statewide tour of business and community groups, board staff participated in extensive meetings to share news about the board’s legislative agenda this session. Many of the groups embedded our agenda in their priorities and several of the groups advanced a letter to the legislature in support of ABOR’s agenda.

Board leadership also presented to a forum of national higher education reporters to discuss the board’s resident student funding model and the new educational attainment initiative, Achieve60AZ. Board leaders also visited with editorial boards for Arizona newspapers to discuss the legislative agenda and the UA presidential search.
