| Since 2002, Arizona State University President Michael M. Crow has been guiding the transformation of ASU into one of the nation’s leading public research universities, one that is directly engaged in the economic, social, and cultural vitality of its region. Under his direction, the university pursues teaching, research, and creative excellence focused on the major challenges and questions of our time. ASU maintains the principle of accessibility to all qualified students and serves as a pipeline connecting students to the public and private sectors—central to building a sustainable environment and economy for Arizona. However, ASU’s impact extends beyond Arizona through our commitment to global engagement and setting a new standard for public service. This innovative and creative energy reverberates across ASU and creates an excitement to support our ambitious aims. |

The ASU Foundation for A New American University is a private, 501 (c)(3) nonprofit that supports Arizona State University—a game-changer in public higher education. Qualified candidates will work with a talented pool of likeminded development officers and other fundraising professionals to support ASU and its mission as a New American University. Advancing one of the largest public universities in the US requires a sophisticated fundraising operation to ensure the success of ASU’s mission and the community it serves. This requires team members who engage in out-of-the-box and entrepreneurial thinking. We seek candidates of the highest level of talent who are ready to help evolve the culture of philanthropy for ASU, while developing new practices to help ASU achieve its mission.
