Program: A New Era for Mining and Mineral Resource Education at the University of Arizona
Venue, food, and beverage sponsor:
Speaker: Brad Ross, PhD, Interim Director of the School of Mining and Mineral Resources
Overview: The UofA is excited about the creation of its new School of Mining and Mineral Resources. The mission of the School is to transform how students, professionals, and communities work across boundaries to meet the complex challenges of supplying economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable mineral resources to meet the demands of today’s society.
The new School will use a multidisciplinary approach to expand and improve the delivery of mining and mineral resource education and research across campus. A new minor will be offered to students from any discipline, from accounting to systems engineering, who will graduate with a strong understanding of mining and mineral resources.
This presentation will discuss the overall philosophies and structure of the new School, describe the curriculum being developed for the minor, and review the progress made to date. Since one of the overall goals of the School is to build strong strategic partnerships, the presentation will also describe how anyone can be a part of this exciting new initiative.
