Get involved in UX@UA

Build your network and skills alongside other UX professionals and enthusiasts at the UA and beyond. Our group welcomes UA students, faculty, and staff, as well as community members.

You can participate in any of our events whether you're brand new to UX, a professional wanting to share your expertise, or somewhere in between.

We host virtual meetups about once a month. These usually include presentations and time to network or socialize. We post our events and manage RSVPs through our Meetup group. Join Meetup to get notified when we announce a new event.

One of the biggest challenges to UX research is recruiting participants for studies. To aid in this, the library has created a participant pool. Help us build the pool by sharing this link with your friends and colleagues! If you have any questions, contact Rebecca Blakiston or Lara Miller.
