California Competes Cohosts Legislative Events with Arizona State University

On Monday, August 30, California Competes and Arizona State University (ASU) will cohost a briefing for legislative staff in the morning and a dinner for legislators in the evening. Both events will feature question and answer sessions with California Competes Executive Director Dr. Su Jin Gatlin Jez and ASU President Michael Crow. Since taking office in 2002, President Crow has positioned ASU as the prototype of the New American University while chronicling a new “Fifth Wave” in higher education. These events will also bring together members of the California Competes Leadership Council to hear from President Crow and to engage in important discussions about what California institutions can learn from ASU’s balancing of access to and excellence in public higher education.
