Make a Difference

Day of service brightens Phoenix neighborhood

Through more than 800 community partners, our students give more than 600,000 hours of service in the community. They are part of the Community Solutions Corps, working collaboratively to affect change. The College Day of Service is just one example, bringing together more than 150 ASU students, faculty and staff to clean alleys and repaint murals in the Westwood community of central Phoenix.

Bridging Success helps foster youth reach potential

In Arizona, former foster youth can go to college tuition-free, but there's still the cost of room, meals, books and daily living expenses—not easy for a young person just starting out. Bridging Success gives students a head-start and a network of resources. It was a valuable resource for Nikki Burgess who lived with a foster family in high school, but during her freshman year at Arizona State University she hit a rough patch.

ASU's Public Service Academy trains students as ethical leaders

More than 260 aspiring leaders are learning the nitty-gritty details of how to serve their communities at Arizona State University’s innovative Public Service Academy, which is marking its one-year anniversary with plans for expansion.
