Downtown Phoenix Partnership - An extraordinary partnership between ASU and Phoenix

The Downtown Phoenix campus at Arizona State University is the result of an extraordinary partnership between ASU and the City of Phoenix.

This year, ASU was named a regional outreach scholarship recipient of the 2008 C. Peter Magrath University Community Engagement Award, which recognizes the outreach and engagement partnerships of four-year public universities.

This video was created by KAET/Eight for consideration in the national level of the award competition. The national recipient will be named in November.
