The College of Public Service and Community Solutions is now Watts College of Public Service and Community Solutions.
This name change reflects a generous gift made by Mike and Cindy Watts to the college as an investment in our diverse and mission-driven student body who do not wait to graduate until they make a difference in the communities that they serve.
A Message from Dean Jonathan Koppell
Oct 1, 2018
Dear friends, colleagues, students and supporters:
Today was a momentous day for our college.
During today’s Community Solutions Festival, ASU President Michael M. Crow joined me in announcing the historic renaming of our college, now known as the Watts College of Public Service and Community Solutions — capturing the legacy of longtime ASU supporters Cindy and Mike Watts, founders of Sunstate Equipment Co.
Working at the forefront of societal challenges and trends, the Watts College of Public Service and Community Solutions is uniquely positioned to advance Mike and Cindy Watts’ vision of communities transformed through a collaborative, hands-on approach to developing solutions. By creating new pathways for student success, we are creating the next generation of public service leaders who will guide that transformation.
