UA South - University South Foundation


Description

The University South Foundation, Inc. was formed in 1988 as The University Foundation of Sierra Vista, Inc.

The Foundation's initial campaign, "Project First Step", culminated in the dedication and official opening of The University of Arizona Sierra Vista Campus on August 12, 1993. The multi-purpose 12,600 square-foot, $1 million building, located on a 13-acre campus behind Cochise College, was entirely funded with private funds. This building, which currently houses The University of Arizona South Administration, is still owned by the Foundation. The University South Foundation, Inc. has successfully raised funds to build the Arizona Folklore Building, which opened in 2002, located in Ramsey Canyon and the Patterson Observatory, which opened in 2004, located on The University of Arizona South, Sierra Vista Campus.

In 2003, the University Foundation of Sierra Vista, Inc. became the University South Foundation, Inc. to reflect the expanded geographic service area of The University of Arizona South. The presence of The University of Arizona South in Pima County, Nogales, Douglas, and future locations throughout the state makes the University South Foundation, Inc. an integral part to the continued growth and development of The University of Arizona South today.
