An Extraordinary Partnership between Arizona State University and the City of Phoenix
Friedman, Debra
Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement, v13 n3 p89-100 2009
The Arizona State University Downtown Phoenix campus is a grand-scale exemplar of a city-university partnership. Its demonstrated impacts are economic, social, and educational, transforming both the city and the university. The magnitude of the investment of $223 million by the citizens of a city in a state university is unparalleled in higher education. In 2006, the Colleges of Public Programs (including the Schools of Social Work, Public Affairs, and Community Resources and Development), Nursing and Health Care Innovation, and University College moved from ASU Tempe to become the foundational colleges of this new campus, located strategically to advance the three cornerstones of the ASU mission--access, excellence, and impact--as well as to become the finest examples of two of the design principles of the New American University: use-inspired research and social embeddedness. (Contains 3 endnotes.)
