Arizona State University (ASU) has developed a new model for the American Research University, creating an institution that is committed to access, excellence and impact. ASU measures itself by those it includes, not by those it excludes. As the prototype for a New American University, ASU pursues research that contributes to the public good, and ASU assumes major responsibility for the economic, social and cultural vitality of the communities that surround it.
A grant that supports the creation, implementation, and dissemination of a digital training curriculum called the Edge. Designed specifically to prepare opportunity youth for their first jobs, ASU plans to connect 20,000 Opportunity Youth to this innovative and industry-validated curriculum.
