Arizona Public Media informs, inspires and connects our community by bringing people and ideas together.

We connect you to the community and the world through the intellectual and creative resources of the University of Arizona. We are leaders within the community and industry, embracing new technologies, ideas, and partnerships. Our efforts in service to the community are sustained by the investment of individual supporters in partnership with the University of Arizona, the business community, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.


AZPM staff, volunteers, and students are committed to meeting the needs and exceeding the expectations of our audiences and colleagues with honesty and integrity. We are dedicated to uncompromising journalistic values, high-quality production, and the best use of technology.


We believe that meaningful long-term impact comes through innovation and through mutually beneficial relationships with production partners. We accept reasonable risk in our strategic investments and reward performance, in order to foster sustained growth.


Through our work we promote an open exchange of knowledge, ideas, and experiences. We value individual contributions and respect the differences of our staff and partners. Diversity of opinion and constructive, open debate are encouraged and appreciated. As we are an operating unit of the University of Arizona, continual learning and education are at the core of our culture.


We set challenging goals and achieve measurable results working together as members of a unified team striving daily to improve performance in service to our community. Our decisions will be guided by what best serves audiences. We are committed to using our combined financial, technical, and human capital, and our multiple stations, to create more value for audiences together as a system than as individual stations.
