Mission


The University of Arizona Department of Intercollegiate Athletics (ICA) considers athletics to be an integral part of the University community and thus follows the University of Arizona's overall institutional mission.

A commitment to excellence in athletics implies that ICA will provide exemplary leadership, appropriate facilities and support services to allow its student-athletes to compete at the highest level of intercollegiate competition, while providing assistance towards educational and academic progress objectives.

The Wildcat Club is a leading resource for allowing Arizona Athletics to accomplish this mission. Through the support of members and donors, the Wildcat Club provides financial support needed for scholarships, state-of-the-art facilities, equipment, team travel and all the other tools that help our student-athletes succeed on and off the playing surface.
