Student Affairs is committed to devloping innovative programs and offering services that meet the needs of students faculty and staff.
The BookStores offer a wide variety of programs and services beyond selling products. Book Scholarships are offered to all student employees, faculty and staff receive employee discounts and an Affiliate Membership Program offers discounts to non-university individuals designated by departments. Book programs including story time for children, book discussion groups for adults, and author signing/readings are offered each month. Musical entertainment is provided during the Friday noon hour when school is in session.
The University of Arizona BookStores use profits from product sales to replenish inventory and financially support all the above programming as well as supporting student organizations including ASUA (student government), selected faculty programs, and broad based campus programs which support the academic mission (i.e. Commencement, Faculty Speaker Series, Faculty/Student Interaction and Faculty Fellows.
Additionally, the division continues to test the pulse of the university community to determine needs and the best means of meeting those needs.
