Since 2002, more than 50 staff and students in the ASU Office of University Initiatives (UI) have developed, launched and managed projects related to leadership development, student success, workforce innovation and online learning communities.
UI incubated innovative programs and initiatives that challenged the status quo in higher education, enriched the student experience and responded to the needs of communities around the world.
UI designed mechanisms to strengthen ASU’s institutional capacity for connecting with communities in mutually beneficial ways.
UI served as a catalyst for innovation at ASU by supporting faculty and staff with thought leadership, timely research and design tools to provoke out-of-the-box thinking.
UI cultivated partnerships with foundations, corporations and non-profits because addressing complex issues requires collaboration among diverse stakeholders.
UI built a collaborative environment that encouraged experimentation and empowered an interdisciplinary group of academics, professionals and students to contribute their creativity and talents toward responding to the complex needs of the university and the communities it serves.
