What is Quickstart?
Arizona Quickstart is the result of developers across campus collaborating together in the Arizona Digital working group to bring a shared resource to campus that meets the most common needs of diverse units united behind one brand and embracing the challenges of security and accessibility.
Quickstart was built so that you can focus on the actual purpose of your website: making your desired actions easier, whether that action is enrolling, engaging, donating, or using your services.
- UArizona Branded
