We hope you will take the opportunity to learn more about ASU in California. ASU alumni can also stay connected to ASU through the Northern California ASU Alumni Chapter.

ASU, named the most innovative university in the country eight years in a row, is the prototype of a New American University and the leading National Service University. Our impact is not limited by state boundaries: more than 18,000 Californians enroll at ASU each year. We also have a new home at the ASU California Center, located at the historic Herald Examiner building in Los Angeles. ASU’s vision for meeting the needs of California’s students and families has been covered by the Los Angeles Times, LA Weekly and others.

If you are interested in partnering with ASU on this work, or if you have any questions about this event, please contact Christian Osmeña, ASU’s vice president for enterprise planning.
