Guided by its charter, Arizona State University is committed to inclusion and student success. This approach touches ASU employees in their work and workplace every single day.
With more than 80,000 students on its campuses and more than 90,000 learners online, ASU is home to students from all 50 states and nearly 150 different countries. That creates a rich blend of backgrounds and makes ASU highly inclusive and socioeconomically diverse.
Like in the United States military and many other large and complex organizations, working together and coexisting requires training. ASU provides a comprehensive set of training — including being an inclusive community — to help create awareness, develop skills to meet the needs of diverse students and develop teams of people capable of working together to advance the ASU mission.
The inclusive communities training provided to ASU employees will continue to evolve based on feedback, changes in the university’s operational environment, and the modification or addition of new skills needed by the ASU workforce.
