 Mission and Vision

The Agnese Nelms Haury Program

The University of Arizona sits on the original homelands of Indigenous Peoples who have stewarded this land since time immemorial. Aligning with the University's core value of a diverse and inclusive community, we share a responsibility to recognize and acknowledge the people, cultures, and histories that make up our community.

The Agnese Nelms Haury Program (Haury Program) was established in 2014 at UArizona to support research and community-based outreach to solve a range of sustainability challenges and their disparate impacts. The Haury Program seeks to honor the memory of Mrs. Agnese Haury, who believed in social justice and sought to solve the many "wicked" societal and environmental problems facing our region and the world. The Haury Program is funded by a bequest from Mrs. Haury's trust and is overseen by a Donor Advised Fund board.  It is the only program with this unique governance structure at the UArizona.

Between 2014 and 2019, the Haury Program invested $8,395,690 on approximately 70 individuals and teams of the University of Arizona and community partners in project-based work, including several Indian country projects conducted in partnership with Native faculty, staff, and students.

In 2020, the Haury Program established its new Tribal Initiative in response to the water sustainability challenges faced by Indian Country due to COVID-19. The Initiative has two primary components: support of work that addresses water sustainability challenges for Native and Indigenous communities, and strengthening the Native and Indigenous scholar, student, and staff pipeline at UArizona.
