Campus Tour - Arizona State University

Wednesday, November 28th from 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

If you arrive in Phoenix on Wednesday for the Integrating Analytics Forum, join us for a tour of Arizona State University. ASU is approximately 20 minutes from the conference hotel and is one of the most innovative institutions in higher education:

  • #1 in innovation from Best Colleges in U.S. News & World Report, 2016, 2017 and 2018 
  • Top 1 percent of the world’s most prestigious universities in 2018 from Times Higher Education

  • #7 Gold rating in overall top performers in doctoral institutions in the Sustainability Campus Index from AASHE

The bus will leave the hotel promptly at 2:45 pm (local, Phoenix time) and depart from the campus back to the hotel at 6:00 pm. The Tempe campus has more than 52,000 students; yet it is compact and efficiently laid out for ease of walking. Walking is required.
More specifics are yet to come on content, but the tour’s general objective is to highlight innovative and efficient design. This is also a great opportunity to network with other attendees of the forum.
