Wildcat Kittens Gallery

Human Resources invites UA employees to e-mail a photo of the new baby or child who joined your family, to be posted in a rotating gallery on this site. If you choose to provide the child's first name we will include that information. To submit a photo, please e-mail Kirsteen Anderson: keanderson@email.arizona.edu. By e-mailing Human Resources your child's photo, you give us permission to post it in this section of the website only, with first name, if provided.
