Arizona State University, the No. 1 university in the country for innovation for the second consecutive year, takes great pride in celebrating its achievements at its annual signature event Founders' Day. These achievements are largely due to the talented individuals who perpetuate the growth and diversity envisioned by the founders of this institution. We are pushing the boundaries of research in humanities, science, technology, service, language, literature, sports and numerous other fields.

We invite you to celebrate with us and participate as a sponsor. This opportunity allows you to show your support for an institution that is changing the paradigm of higher education with its mission of providing accessible education to all, advancing research and discovery of public value; and assuming fundamental responsibility for the economic, social, cultural and overall health of the communities it serves.

The event honors the best of the best and in the past, esteemed honorees have included Congressman Ed Pastor, national hero Pat Tillman (posthumously), Professional football Hall of Fame inductee Randall McDaniel, professional golfer Phil Mickelson, the Honorable Ruth McGregor, and former Tempe Mayor Neil Giuliano. With a history that dates back to 1964, this annual event attracts the highest level of university administrators, faculty, and leaders of the local business community.
