A note from the dean

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences has been my home for three decades. I’m confident about our ability to educate socially aware, critically thinking citizens who will bring about positive change in the world. That transformation starts with the support of parents and families. Together, we can create a legacy of scholars who are eager to pursue a higher education and, with it, we can drastically change the number of opportunities available for these individuals with a college degree.

I want to drive home the importance of an informed and supportive family in our community because they play a vital role in our students’ success. Whether you’re encouraging your student to take advantage of free tutoring or explaining the benefits associated with study abroad and travel, you can empower your son or daughter to take personal responsibility for their academic achievements at ASU.

College can transform generations of families

First-generation students change the trajectory of their family linages by instilling a desire to pursue higher education. When a first-generation student completes a degree, the chances of other generations following down a similar path are incredibly high. Education in a family linage can dramatically change and alter the course for future generations of scholars.
