This is a tremendously exciting time to be affiliated with Arizona State University, a national leader in teaching, research and the delivery of tangible benefits to the community. ASU is a New American University, one that is committed to tackling the major challenges we face.
Here at the foundation, we are proud of the support we provide to advance ASU’s mission. Besides securing and stewarding private support for ASU, we work as well to promote meaningful engagement by the public in many of the vital academic programs at the university.
We are also strong advocates for higher education here in Arizona and in our nation. We understand that our investment in this and future generations of ASU students and their teachers will pay off in the economic, political and cultural health of our state.
I am very optimistic about the future of Arizona and our county, particularly because we have developed a system of public higher education that is the envy of the world. I am grateful for the dedication and hard work of the Board of Directors; and I very much appreciate the thousands of ASU friends and supporters who contribute both financially and through their enthusiasm and loyalty to the impressive progress this university has already made.
Together, we are building a model for American higher education in the 21st century. I urge you to join us in this bold challenge. Invest in ASU today!
