In late 2015 the Chamber of Commerce, with the financial support of Resolution Copper Mining, embarked on a large, long term, project to attract new business and help our existing businesses increase their bottom line. We hired several consultants, all with various areas of expertise, who held community meetings, interviewed hundreds of people and produced recommendations for what needed to be done.
Our objective is to “Build a diverse and sustainable economy for the Superior Community”
In order to meet this objective we adopted 4 goals.
Three sub-committees were created; Marketing, Art and Culture and Blight Mitigation. All are working hard toward our goals and will be posting updates on the website periodically. We welcome comments and suggestions to be sent to the Chamber of Commerce through our website www.superiorarizonachamber.org
The University has been modeled after that of the original university systems in Europe at the advent of education; where, Bible teaching was required even for medical and law students. We believe teaching should emphasis the furthering of morality, Christian influence and Theology and prepare graduates to boldly teach sound consistent doctrine.
It is our mandate to make the best contemporary Christian education accessible and affordable to students around the Globe. We offer relevant teaching, specific to the cultural, economic and spiritual needs of our students, to prepare them for their Ministry calling. We also provide recognition of lifelong learning and awarding of earned degrees to gifted and qualified men and women, through our portfolio process known as the MAP-PAC© system.
"The mission of Boyce Thompson Arboretum is to inspire appreciation and stewardship of desert plants, wildlife, and ecosystems through education, research, and conservation."
An Arboretum is a botanical garden that focuses on trees and other woody plants. Although Colonel William Boyce Thompson’s original intent was to plant trees (hence the name, Arboretum), he soon realized that all types of plants from deserts around the world should be included, studied, conserved, and made available to the public.
Boyce Thompson Southwestern Arboretum was founded April 1, 1924, incorporated as Arizona’s first nonprofit research institution October 5, 1927, and officially dedicated and opened to the public April 6 1929.
