This year, APASA & partners are proud to bring this conference to the Tucson community.  Students, staff, faculty, and community members are invited to participate in interactive workshops, listen to guest speakers from & beyond the UA, and engage in a discussion that will help form what an APA Studies program would look like in Tucson.
