It’s all brand to me
Monday, July 18, 10–10:50 a.m.
ASU has emerged as a different kind of university — one that serves learners at every stage of life. As ASU evolves in the future, how will the ASU brand evolve as well? In this session, you’ll be hearing from ASU leaders and special guest Maria Anguiano, executive vice president of ASU Learning Enterprise.
As the foundation for all ASU communications, the brand platform stays true to what is relevant and compelling to our growing audiences.

Google presents: Student perspectives on the value of education
Monday, July 18, 1–1:50 p.m.
Students are paying close attention to the value of education — whether it’s to get a credential, land a job or simply understand how the world works. In order to meet their learning needs, we need to identify what they care about and what success looks like for them. Join the Google Education team as they share insights from their study with Ipsos uncovering the preferences, expectations and motivations of students today.
"Mau" with Bruce Mau: movie premier and Q&A session
Thursday, July 21, 9–10:50 a.m.
Meet Bruce Mau himself at the premier of "Mau," the first-ever, feature-length documentary about his legacy as a design visionary. The film explores the untold story of his unlikely rise in the creative world and ever-optimistic push to expand the boundaries of design. We tell the story of his incredible career — from Mecca to MOMA, from Guatemala to Coca-Cola, and his most important project yet: his own life.
Messaging is key: A conversation with Cheryl Boone Isaacs
Thursday, July 21, 12–12:50 p.m.
Join Cheryl Boone Isaacs, a seasoned veteran in film marketing and public relations and former president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, for a fireside chat. In this session, you’ll learn:
- How to listen to and acknowledge alternative perspectives.
- How to restructure your message in a way that doesn’t alienate your audience.
If your plans change and you are not able to attend an in-person day, please update your agenda so someone else might attend.
