The “Powered by” descriptor has been used by several ASU units to label relationships with organizations and institutions leveraging ASU tools, curricula and services. “Powered by” represents the ideal action-oriented terminology that best reflects ASU’s contribution to several agreements.

In the case of a formal relationship that does not rise to the level of “partnership,” the entity can use a “Powered by ASU” lockup.
