Our Values

  • We serve. We serve the faculty and staff of ASU to bring them resources so they can do all the great things that they do.
  • We engage. We engage our donors, philanthropists and investors, connecting them to ASU and helping them share their time, talent and treasure.
  • We innovate. We’re always looking for new ideas, new solutions, new approaches, and new ways to address the challenges facing ASU.
  • When we serve, engage and innovate, it shows that we care — about faculty, staff, donors, fellow employees and other partners as we bring resources to ASU.
