The University of Arizona is celebrating the opening of a new office in Washington, D.C.

University of Arizona President Robert Robbins is fronting a delegation of University leaders in the nation’s capital this week. They’re hosting a series of meetings on issues ranging from name, image and likeness rules for student-athletes to the development of data science.

Robbins says the new Center for Outreach and Collaboration will put the University front and center amid national policy makers.

“It also gives us an opportunity like we’re doing all week to showcase some of the really exciting things the university is doing," said Robbins.

The sessions will include the premiere of a documentary on the immigration crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border, and a roundtable discussion focused on the role universities play in supporting national security and the workforce development needs of the nation.
