Change Lives

ASU’s charter mandates that we take responsibility for the economic, social, cultural, and overall health of the communities that surround our campuses. Over the past decade, we have launched more than 1,200 community outreach programs directly involving thousands of faculty, staff, and students. ASU has set a new standard for what it means to be an engaged university.

Everything that happens here, whether in classrooms, studios, labs, or other collaborative spaces, is about both the success of the student and the success of the community. ASU strives to provide opportunities for students to connect their coursework to the real world. When students organize a hunger-relief drive or create a colorful mural on a city corner, they both learn and contribute. The same holds true when they work with faculty to build networks that make healthy, locally grown foods more widely available, or they write and produce a news program for Arizona PBS. Other students gain valuable skills by tutoring in the public schools or launching entrepreneurial ventures that boost the local economy.

The FitPHX health and wellness effort leverages not only ASU expertise but that of private donors and civic and nonprofit partners, such as the Mayor’s Office, Parks and Recreation, the Maricopa County Department of Public Health, and others. ASU students provide the manpower as interns and researchers and volunteers, and they gain great real-world experience as a result."
