Inclusive access to lifelong learning
ASU is deeply connected in California
At ASU, we’re always thinking about what’s next. ASU’s commitment to lifelong learners and their futures means expanding opportunities and access to higher education, while facilitating the development of innovative careers in a rapidly changing workplace environment.
In California, where ASU has been deeply connected for many years working with educational, non-profit and business partners, the university now has a new home, the ASU California Center in downtown Los Angeles, located at the historic Herald Examiner building. Here, ASU will feature some of its top-ranked and accredited undergraduate and graduate degree programs and innovative transdisciplinary opportunities will give California students — and those from all of ASU’s campuses — new opportunities to connect with LA and global industries through high-demand jobs and internships. All of this reflects a growing commitment to California in ASU’s mission of providing access to higher education and fulfilling entrepreneurial aspirations.
