Arizona State University, ranked No. 1 “Most Innovative School” in the nation by U.S. News & World Report for three years in succession, has forged the model for a New American University, creating an institution that is committed to excellence, access and impact. ASU pursues research that contributes to the public good; and ASU assumes major responsibility for the economic, social and cultural vitality of the communities it serves. Arizona State University’s impact in the West Valley continues to grow, producing more master learners dedicated to the betterment of our community and society overall. An educational anchor in the community for four decades, ASU’s West campus offers students, faculty and the community the phenomenal and widespread resources of the country’s largest public research university with the unique learning experiences of a more intimate learning environment.
The West Campus of Arizona State University creates a learning community blending liberal arts education with 21st-century workforce preparation. This combination is exemplified by the New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences, and degree programs offered by the W. P. Carey School of Business, the College of Nursing and Health Innovation, Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College, College of Health Solutions, and College of Public Service and Community Solutions. The West campus is home to the first undergraduate degree to be offered by Thunderbird School of Global Management and a noted Bachelor of Science in forensics through New College.
ASU's West Campus provides modern amenities in its residence halls, dining facilities, and the Sun Devil Fitness Complex and swimming pool. Subtropical landscaping, fountains and outdoor enclaves are third-space opportunities for students to socialize or collaborate while pursuing any of more than 90 undergraduate and graduate degree programs. West campus landmarks include the Albert Paley-designed entry gates, extensive public art, and at the center of campus, Fletcher Lawn. This commons is a contemporary homage to traditional university education, as is the Oxford-inspired architecture around it on the courtyard-fashioned campus.
