The University of Arizona has held a unique position in the leadership of mining in the United States since opening in 1881 as the School of Mines, educating students in topics ranging from ore analysis to metallurgy. The school was renamed to the University of Arizona College of Mines in 1915, and it became one of the first of its kind. After a period of rapid expansion, the college merged with UA's school of engineering to form the University of Arizona School of Mines and Engineering, one of the first comprehensive mineral resource and extraction education departments in the nation. In June 2021, the new School of Mining and Mineral Engineering was established with a focus on a holistic approach to mineral resource management.
